One of the most traditional ‘cuts’ that I have in the Higgledy Garden…a very old school bloom…perfect for a country style garden…or display.
The reason I grow ‘Auricula-Eyed’ for the cut flower patch is because it gets to a good height…about 60cm…has very wonderful fragrant flowers on strong stems. Flowers themselves are bicoloured in shades of crimson, purple and pink with contrasting centers…a very striking Sweet William. It will flower from May.
500ish seeds in a packet
Sow Sweet William seeds in June/July for a flowering the following May-July
