GROWING GUIDE

Pre-sowing Treatment: Rinse the seeds well with tepid water 3 times before sowing.

Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of the year. Sow in pots or trays of moist seed compost, eg. John Innes, at a depth of 2mm. Seal in a polythene bag or place in a propagator and maintain an optimum temperature of 18-25C. Germination should take place in 21 to 60 days. Gradually increase ventilation as the seedlings emerge by opening the bag or propagator vents.

Growing Instructions: When the seedlings are large enough to handle, pot up into small pots and grow on in slightly cooler conditions in plenty of light but shaded from direct sunlight. Overwinter in a frost free place for the first couple of winters before hardening off and planting out in a sunny position. Hardy to –5C when mature – may need protection in very cold regions.
