With today's free seeds - a bedding mix, plus rudbeckia, aster, poppy and antirrhinum
- you can make sure your garden is full of colour this summer.
And for a threesome then introduce Antirrhinum

Its main products are basil, coriander, chives and flat parsley, but increasing public interest in cookery has led to the development of exotic varieties such as garlic chives, roccolla or wild rocket, red mustard and chard, lemon grass, edible courgette, and nasturtium, pansy and antirrhinum
system provides a unique opportunity to test these ideas because it has both well-characterized self-incompatibility and flower colour variation.

rust which is specific to this plant.
Two flower varieties were tested for rust - which weakens plants as they show symptoms of powdery orange, yellow, brown or black spots on the leaves - the antirrhinum

Other friendly plants include antirrhinum
