Snapdragons are cheerful annual plants, guaranteed to brighten up borders and containers.
Also known as Antirrinhims, these are easy-to-grow, old-fashioned cottage garden plants, beloved by children and bees. They come in a range of different colours and heights, and therefore can be grown in a variety of situations.
Attractive to wildlife, they have a long flowering period, from June until October. Taller cultivars make good cut flowers and last well over a week in water. Snapdragons will grow in most well-drained, fertile soils in full sun, either in borders or containers. Our seeds will produce a mix of colours.
Instructions for sowing:
1. Sow seeds in early spring in small trays or pots and place on a sunny windowsill.
2. Sow seeds thinly on the surface of compost and water
3. Transfer seeds when large enough to handle into pots and grow in a sheltered spot
4. Plant into the ground or larger pots once the risk of frost has passed.
