Chiltern seeds love these: "What spring garden would be complete without a bed of delightful, sweet-scented Wallflowers, harbingers of warmer weather to come? Very easy to grow and very rewarding; indeed we have found they respond beautifully to the sow and forget technique - bare patches sown with the absolute minimum of fuss in mid-August started flowering the following April and continued to supply the household with an abundance of cut flowers for many weeks thereafter. This is an old Wallflower favourite but its flowers give us a colour, apricot-salmon overlaid with orange, that is as fashionable today as it ever was. Just imagine a bunch of them in a vase!"
