News July 2021

July is a great time to sow all sorts of flower seeds. This is a great month to sow Biennials such as Forget-me-Nots, Wallflowers and Sweet William for early flowering next Spring. You can carry on sowing Perennials and Wildflowers in July too. You can also sow quick growing Hardy Annuals such as Poppies and some Half Hardy Annuals such as Sunflowers. Get them going now and they’ll go on flowering until the winter cold sets in and the frost arrives.
There are so many lovely flowers to grow now. Do feel free to have a browse if you’d like some inspiration. You’ll find growing information for each flower here in the shop too.

Bold Wallflower Mix Seeds

Three packets of Wallflower seeds. These lovely orange and red Wallflowers produces clusters of lightly scented flowers on strong stems. Each flower head is made up of many individual flowers which gives them a most attractive appearance. Blooms are produced early in the year at the same time that Tulips flower from March to the end of May.

  • Fire King has deepest orange/red buds opening to glorious rich orange flowers.
  • Vulcan has deep purple buds opening to crimson flowers.
  • Ruby Gem has the richest red/violet flowers. All three are good for cutting growing to 40-45cm / 16-18 inches tall.

Wallflowers are jolly useful in the garden, in a border with Tulips and other spring blooms and as a cut flower too. Grow rows of these in the cutting patch, as bedding plants or in bold groups in a mixed border in full sun for best results. All Wallflowers are extremely easy to grow and very prolific giving you lots of flowers for not much time, money or effort! What's more the RHS recommends Erysimum cheiri as Perfect for Pollinators.

Genus Erysimum cheiri

Variety Fire King, (orange/red) Vulcan (purple/crimson) & Ruby Gem (red/violet)
Plant Type Hardy Biennial
Height & Spread 40-45cm ( 16-18 inches ) tall x 30cm (12 inches) spread
Sow Seeds Sow outdoors in a well-prepared seedbed when the soil is warm from the end of May to July. Alternatively sow in modules indoors but be careful to keep shaded and temperatures low. Wallflowers will not germinate well in heat. Keep seed trays moist and shaded. Germinates in 7-14 days at 15°C-18°C. Grow on then plant out six weeks later in August/early September.
Thin/Plant Out Transplant to flowering position in autumn allowing plenty of space for the foliage and roots to develop before winter sets in. Allow a minimum of 30cm per plant.
Conditions Required Wallflowers love well drained soil. They prefer a site with plenty of sunshine and can also grow well in dappled shade. They are great for large containers too. Feed and water regularly to keep flower production going.
Flower Production Sow this summer for flowering next spring. Like many biennials Erysimum flowers early in the year (March onwards) before hardy annuals and perennials come into flower in June. Clusters of scented blooms are produced for up to three months until the end of May.
Picking Cut flowers regularly and dead-head to make sure that your plants continue to produce new blooms. When cutting strip the lower leaves, sear stem ends in boiling water for 20 seconds and place the cut flowers into a tall bucket of clean water. Allow to rest overnight before arranging. Lasts up to 10 days as a cut flower.
Planting Combinations If you have the space I suggest you grow plenty of lovely wallflowers. You can never have too many! This Bold Wallflower Mix grows particularly well with Tulips and other Wallflowers such as Sunset Mixed and White Dame in a bedding scheme or in large containers.
