Perennial wallflower

I grow all the perennial wallflowers as if they are annuals. I think they flower best when one to two year old but then become woody and exhausted. As joslow and others have said cuttings are so easy. Flowering plants produced in a season
My favourite....although its Variegata (always called it that) with green and white leaves and white flowers Beautiful foliage plant that's reasonably hardy here. Superb cheap summer impact

Often on the box of feed and weed it says first mowings should be well composed before use. I always....always.....make sure such clippings cannot be used for a full season
Paperflowers the name of the product would be helpful but I think your annuals will be fine....just gold back for few weeks before planting

Hiya. It looks more like a moss killer....ferrous,sulphate.....would burn roots surely? In theory it should wash through quick enough but I would not want to,risk expensive plants there yet
Paperfllwers however did say she used weed and feed .....must have known what,she piurchased .so likely there is a weedkiller in there. Probably mentioned on front of the box
