A scented violet-blue form of Hesperis with sprays of flowers from May to June/July. The flowers smell best in the early evening. Plants grow to a good height of 90-120cm and are great for borders and for wilder parts of the garden, where they self seed once established. Hesperis attracts butterflies and bees into the garden.
Sweet Rocket does best in full sun to part shade in rich, moist well-drained soil. For year on year flowering, leave some flowerheads on the plants to encourage self-seeding.
Pack of 1g (approx 500) seeds. Sow in spring to autumn, either in pots, or directly in the soil during the summer. Plants flower in the season after sowing. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
