Sowing Instructions:  Sow at any time of year except mid summer.

Sow on the surface of a moist, free-draining seed compost.  Do not cover the seed.  Propagate at 20-25C in a propagator, greenhouse or on a shaded windowsill indoors, keeping the compost slightly moist at all times.   Germination should take place in 14-30 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 9cm pots and grow on in well-ventilated slightly cooler conditions.   When well established, gradually acclimatise to cooler conditions and plant out in a sunny spot in well drained soil.
