- Bright, bold colours on plants which do not succumb to ‘rust’ disease. A most reliable and sparkling seed mixture of classic ‘snapdragon’ flowers which provides plenty of colour in summer beds and borders. Rust Resistant Mixed is also tall enough to make a good cut flower for indoor display.
- Antirrhinum is actually a half-hardy perennial, which may over-winter in mild and frost-free areas, but it is usually treated as a half-hardy annual as it flowers easily in the year of sowing. The name ‘antirrhinum’ derives from the Greek anti (opposite) and rhis (snout) which refers to the shape of the corolla.
Sow indoors, January-March. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow, 0.5cm (¼") deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant seedlings, 5cm (2") apart, to other trays when large enough to handle (always handle by a leaf and never by the stem). Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, May-June, 25cm (10") apart, into well-drained soil, when frosts are over. Flowers: June-October.
