Pre-Sowing Instructions: Soak seeds for 12 hours or until seeds swell.

Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of year, except early to mid-summer. Sow very thinly 3mm seep in moist, free-draining seed compost. Propagate at 20-25C in a propagator, greenhouse or on a windowsill sealed in a polythene bag. Germination should take place in 30-60 days and can be erratic, hence the need to sow thinly so that seedlings can be removed without disturbing the compost too much.

Growing Instructions: When the seedlings are large enough to handle, pot up individually into small pots (7-9cm) and grow on in well-ventilated, cooler conditions. Overwinter if necessary in a frost free place. When established, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out in late spring in a sunny position in any soil except very waterlogged.
