“My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece.”
~ Claude Monet ~
Bright colours and easy to grow flowers, they’re a winner in our books!
This little green mounding shrub produces sprays of flowers in all shades from pinks, whites & reds with modern purple shades too. A hardy, naturally pest-resistant plant blooming from Spring all the way until Autumn they are a staple in many cottage gardens.
Ideally they are best grown in a full sun location where they receive at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, in well drained soil boosted with organic matter dug in – Super Growth pellets should do the trick.
You can start these little ones off as seeds indoors and once they have grown to around 5 to 6 centimetres tall, transplant them out into the garden.
Keep up a regular watering regime and give them a dose of Neptune Seaweed liquid every 3 to 4 weeks and you won’t be disappointed by their continual displays of bright flowers and their cinnamon, clove like fragrance.

Super Chicken’s Top Tips!
- Time to finish planting bare rooted trees, shrubs and perennials while they are dormant for winter.
- Prune your citrus trees and fertilise with Katek Super Phoska + TE Citrus & Fruit Fertilizer.
