How to Grow Cheiranthus
If planning to grow Cheiranthus plants outdoors then the seeds should be sown either in early spring or early autumn (if treating as a hardy biennial then they should be planted from the end of summer) at a depth of 7 mm. They should be grown in an area of the garden that is either sunny or partially shaded.
Garden Wallflowers like to grow in a neutral or slightly limy soil that has good drainage. When growing Cheiranthus from seeds indoors they should be prepared about ten weeks before you plant them outdoors in the early spring (middle of summer for biennials). Cheiranthus should be spaced at about 15 cm (small) to 30/40cm apart (others).
Caring for wallflowers / Cheiranthus in the Garden
Once established pinching back the tips will encourage the garden wallflower to become more bushy. If you are growing the plant as an hardy annual then plants should be removed once they have finished flowering. If you require more Cheiranthus plants then you can take cuttings from wallflowers in late spring.
