Sowing & Growing Instructions:  Sow at any time of year except mid summer on the surface of moist seed compost and lightly cover the seed with compost. Place in a propagator or seal in a polythene bag and maintain a temperature of 15-18C. Can be grown in a coldframe outdoors if the temperature is above 15C though try to avoid mid summer as the seedlings may grow too quickly in the heat and become spindly. Germination should occur in 5-20 days.

When the seedlings have emerged, gradually increase the ventilation by opening the propagator vents or opening the bag. Grow on until large enough to handle and pot up into small pots (7-9cm) and grow on in cooler conditions in plenty of light but shaded from direct sunlight. In spring, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out, 60cms apart.
