Hoverflies especially are very beneficial insects and valuable friends in the garden as they are both pollinators and allies in the fight against aphids, thrips, scale insects and caterpillars.

Germination 10-14 days. Thin seedlings in stages until they are 25-30cm apart. Alternatively, for early flowering sow seed during August/September for flowers earlier.
