Ageratum Blue Mink is the classic plant for edging a bedding scheme. It is completely smothered in fluffy Wedgwood blue throughout the summer. The delicate little double flowers are produced in clusters. The frothy texture creates an enchanting effect when added to any planting scheme.

These low growing, rounded plants have a height and spread of 20-30cm, and as half hardy annuals they are best planted out after the last frosts.

Sow ageratum on a window sill or in a greenhouse at approx 15-18°C from February to May on the surface of a good seed compost; firm down and keep compost damp but not too wet;  transplant seedlings, spacing them out to 50mm apart;  when established plant out in the ground after all danger of frost has passed.

Average packet contents 1200 seeds.
