They come in a mix of vibrant colours from orange, red, yellow and pink and add a spectacular splash of colour to any home garden, blooming during spring and summer. Ideal for pots, borders, rockeries and beautiful cut flowers Celosia Formula should be planted in a position in full sun in rich, well-drained soil that has been enriched with compost or manure prior to planting.
