A plant which can grow to around 1m tall, red campion fills woodlands and roadside verges with a warming dash of pink colour during the spring and summer. Perennial, the common name is red campion while scientifically named 'Silene dioica' and belonging to the Caryophyllaceae family. Red Campion will grow easily from seed and can be sown in either the spring or early autumn. When the seedlings are large enough to hold, plant them into individual pots; once the plant is a sufficient size, divide and plant into soil in a partially shaded area.

    Germination; Sow into a coldframe in autumn or early spring. Sow directly after danger of frost has passed. Surface sow onto moist, well-drained seed compost. Just cover seed with a sprinkling of soil. Ideal temp. 20°C. Cold frame sowings should germinate in spring as the weather warms. Direct sowings take 2-3 weeks to germinate. Cold frame seedlings should be transplanted to 8cm pots and grown on under glass, acclimatised and planted out after danger of frost has passed. Direct sowings may be thinned if required.

    Growing; Very easy to grow. Prefers any, even poor, soil in full sun. Will tolerate drought once established. Requires little attention. Will not flower in deeper shade.

    Cultivation; Will self-seed freely. Deadhead if you do not want volunteer seedlings next year.
