Flowers: Late summer
Height: 2m, Spread: 1m
Packet of 100 seeds
Sowing Instructions: Sow late winter to late spring, and late summer to late autumn. Sow onto the surface of a moist, free-draining peat based seed compost (eg. Levington). Do not cover seed and do not exclude light which is beneficial to germination. Propagate at 15 to 18C in a propagator, greenhouse or on a windowsill indoors sealed in a polythene bag. Germination should begin to take place in 14 to 21 days. As soon as some of the seedlings begin to emerge, ventilate gradually, maintain a temperature of around 15C and take care not to over-water.
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 sunny position.
