Annual Honesty Seeds
Info: The Annual Honesty has both pretty pink flowers and beautiful seed pods (silicle), of which the inner partitions shine silver and set a beautiful accent in the autumn garden bed. The plants are undemanding, easy to care for and popular with bees.
Sowing & cultivation: The Annual Honesty is a cold germination plant, so it is best to sow in October directly outdoors. The seeds should be placed about 3 cm deep into the soil. The plants like a sunny to semi-shady location and a permeable, slightly calcareous soil, which should always be slightly moist.
