Chater's Double Mix

Description

Ruffled pom-pom like double flowers ranging in colour from white, pink, red and yellow.

Harvesting seed

Allow petals to drop naturally and for the seeds to mature on the plant. A brown fruit pod appears, the top opens to reveal a ring of flat, oval seeds.

Remove the pods and allow them to dry for a few weeks on paper.

Break open the pods and pick out the seeds. Allow to dry for another week and store in an airtight container.
