Poached Egg Plants

Limnanthes or Poached Egg Plant Seeds are easy to grow and produce bright saucer-shaped flowers from summer to autumn. 

The charming nectar-rich flowers are loved by bees and beneficial insects like hoverflies, who then feed on troublesome aphids, so they are ideal for planting at the base of your runner beans, especially if you normally get am aphid problem. 

A hardy annual. Sow indoors from March or outdoors from April to May ready to flower from June to October.

Suggestions for sowing direct are, prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing, sow 3mm deep in rows 300mm apart, When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 150mm apart, grows to a height 150mm.
