Iberis amara Candytuft; Hardy; Western Europe

Cheap and cheerful annual plants with a nice clean appearance are often more worthy of a place on the windowsill indoors than is sometimes imagined, and the pleasantly scented white flowers of the humble candytuft can add that nice touch of difference at very little cost. Sow seed in early spring in cool conditions and pot on as necessary until plants are in 13cm/ 5in pots – a loam-based mixture with a little extra peat added will be fine for potting at all stages of development. After flowering, plants should be disposed of and a new start made with fresh seed in the next season.
