Shelled Warriors Violet Sweet Rocket 200 seeds - free post« back
Feed in moderation as part of a varied diet.
An aromatic violet-blue form of Hesperis with sprays of flowers from May to June/July. The flowers have a sweet violet-like fragrance, at their best in the early evening. Plants grow to a height of 75-100cm and are great for borders and for wilder parts of the garden, where they will self seed once established. Hesperis attracts butterflies and bees into the garden.
Sweet Rocket does best in full sun to part shade in rich, moist well-drained soil. For year on year flowering, leave some flowerheads on the plants to encourage self-seeding.
Sow in spring to autumn, either in pots, or directly in the soil during the summer. Seeds germinate in 4 to 5 weeks at 20 – 30 degrees Celcius, and plants flower in the season after sowing.
