Dwarf wallflower sugar rush

 

 

Wallflower 'Sugar Rush' F1 Hybrid

Erysimum, Cheiranthus

Best New Bedding Plant at the Grower of the Year Awards 2013

Winner in the ‘Best New Bedding Plant’ category at the Grower of the Year Awards 2013, this is one of the most exciting wallflowers to emerge in recent years. Dense, fragrant flower spikes in shades of cream, yellow, red and purple appear not only in the spring, but throughout the autumn too, blooming just 10 weeks after sowing! With a delightful sweet fragrance and compact, multi-branching habit, Wallflower ‘Sugar Rush’ is perfect for beds, borders, containers and window boxes, creating a mass of colour and scent when much of the garden is dormant. Versatile and undemanding, wallflowers are tough enough to cope in even the poorest soils.

A great way to brighten up your garden or front door for Easter, giving you colour for a long period and fragrance that will take you back to your childhood. The best compost to use is Westland john innes multi-purpose which has a mixture of mostly loam and reduced amounts of peat making it a great compost and environmentally  friendly, John our nursery manager has tested this compost over the past few years and he has found it to be the very beat on the market, newer composts have come on stream but none could compare to the john innes from westland ,this compost has slow release fertilizer added which will keep your plants in tip-top condition. Sugar-rush will grow to a height of 30cm (12"). Plant in groups of 3 either on their own or combined with any of the following:

Aquilegias

Pieris

Choisya sundance

Senetti

pansies

To get the best perfume from your 'Sugar Rush' choose a sunny position.

Happy gardening
