Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of year, except mid-summer.  Sow on the surface of a moist, free-draining seed compost and propagate at 18 to 20C in a propagator, coldframe, greenhouse or on a windowsill indoors sealed in a polythene bag. Germination should take place from 14 to 60 days. As the seedlings begin to emerge, very gradually increase ventilation by opening the propagator vents or the bag.

Growing Instructions: When the seedlings are large enough to handle, pot up individually into small pots (7-9cm) and grow on in well-ventilated conditions at about 13 to 15C. Overwinter in a frost free place at about 5C. When established, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out in late spring or early autumn, 50cm apart, in a well drained, sheltered position or in large containers (1 plant to 30cm container). Plants will flower in their second year.
