Outdoors:   Sow March to May.  Sow the seeds 1 cm deep where they are to flower in a sunny spot in finely raked, well drained soil.  Water regularly especially in dry weather.  Germination takes 2-3 weeks.  If necessary, thin out the seedlings to 15cm apart when large enough to handle.  Keep well watered and cut flowers/deadhead regularly to encourage more flowering.

Indoors:  Sow February to March.  Sow 6mm deep in moist, good quality seed compost and cover with sieved compost or vermiculite.  Place in a propagator or seal in a polythene bag and maintain a temperature of 15-21C.  Germination should occur in 2-3 weeks.  When the seedlings have emerged, gradually increase the ventilation by opening the propagator vents or opening the bag.  When large enough to handle, pot up into small pots (7-9cm) and grow on in cooler conditions in plenty of light but shaded from direct sunlight.  When large enough, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out, 20cms apart in a sunny position.
