'Margaret Soley' is available as a collection of three plants in 6.5cm (3in) peat pots.

As soon as you receive the collection you will need to pot them up into larger pots or plant them in to their final pots straight away. A good tip is to feed your plants every other day with a weak solution of a potash-rich liquid fertiliser such as Tomorite. You'll be rewarded with masses of flowers throughout the summer on plants about 30-40cm tall.
