BUYERS NOTES

Huge scarlet lanterns' which are magnificently attractive in the garden and then can be cut and dried to be used all through the winter to decorate naturally, your house. Easy, thriving in almost any soil, sun or shade. Lanterns late summer.

Sowing Information:

Sow in spring at 20C (70F) in a good seed compost. Sow seed on surface of compost and gently firm down compost. Keep soil damp but not wet. Sealingina polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Do not exclude light which is beneficial to germination. Germination usually takes 21-30 days.

Growing Information:

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Plant out in a reserve border and move to their final positions in autumn planting 6cm (24in) apart in ordinary well drained soil and sun.
