English wallflower is a short lived perennial growing to 1ft 8in. Prefers free-draining, alkaline, dry or even rocky places such as sea cliffs. Produces flowers in succession over several months, helping to bridge the ‘June-gap’. Interestingly, recent research has shown that this plant contains the chemical compound cheiranthin which has a stronger cardiotonic action than digitalis (obtained from species such as Foxglove) and supporting a failing heart in a similar manner.
For best germination, direct sow in the fall for germination in the spring. Since this seed needs light to germinate, sow it on the surface of the soil and compact it lightly. For spring planting, mix the seed with moist sand and store it in the refrigerator for 30 days before direct sowing on the surface of the soil. This seed can also be started indoors, sown on the surface of a flat; keep the soil lightly moist and at a temperature of 65-70 degrees until germination, which should occur within 10-15 days. Transplant the seedlings after the last spring frost.
