GROWING GUIDE

Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of year except early to mid summer.  Sow in pots or trays onto the surface of a moist, free-draining good quality seed compost (eg. John Innes) and just cover the seeds with sieved compost or vermiculite. Seal pots/trays in a polythene bag or cover with glass and place in a sheltered place out of direct sunlight (this can be outdoors as long as the temperature is above 10C). Propagate at 10 to 15C in and germination should take place in 7 to 14 days. As soon as some of the seedlings begin to emerge, gradually increase ventilation.

Growing Instructions: Grow the seedlings on, shaded lightly from direct sunlight and when large enough to handle, pot up individually into 8 or 9cm pots. When large enough, plant out into well-drained soil in a semi-shaded or shady position.
