Buy bare-root wallflowers sold in bunches if possible, as these are better value than those sold as potted plants.

Soak roots in water before planting out in borders or containers. Plant them closely together for maximum impact, bearing in mind that they will become bushier as they develop.

Interplant wallflowers with tulips for a fantastic show in April.
