Godetia is a member of the Evening Primrose family, producing hues of pink, ranging from soft pastels to deeper shades, that are perfect for adding a touch of romance to your garden.

These flowers typically bloom in late spring to early summer, providing a burst of colour just before the arrival of warmer weather.

Godetia seeds can be directly seeded into your flower garden or started indoors four to six weeks before the last frost date in your area. Sow seeds early in the season & cover lightly with fine garden or potting soil. Godetia plants do not like to be crowded.
HOW TO GROW GODETIA PINK MIX
- Godetia Pink Mix seeds should be sown directly into the soil in early spring or late summer. The seeds are tiny, so mix them with sand to help with even distribution. Sow the seeds about 0.5 cm (0.2 in) deep and space them about 15-20 cm (6-8 in) apart.
- Soil type prefered by Godetia Pink Mix is well-draining soil rich in organic matter. If your soil is heavy, amend it with compost or sand to improve drainage. The pH should be between 6.0 and 7.5.
- Water regularly, but be careful not to overwater. These plants prefer moist soil but can be susceptible to root rot if they are watered too frequently. Water at the base of the plant, and avoid getting the foliage wet.
- Full sun is preferable but Godetia Pink Mix can tolerate partial shade. Plant them in a spot that gets at least six hours of direct sunlight per day.
- Godetia Pink Mix do not require a lot of fertiliser, but a light application of a balanced fertiliser can help to promote healthy growth and blooming.
- Deadheading is encourage regularly to prolonged blooming. This means removing the spent blooms before they can go to seed. This will also prevent the plant from reseeding itself all over your garden.
