Sowing Instructions:  Sow February – May for flowers from August to October.

Sow on the surface of a moist seed compost and just cover with a very fine sprinkling of sieved compost or vermiculite/perlite.  Seal in a polythene bag and place in the fridge or other cold place below 5C for 2 weeks. Move to a warm place or propagator and maintain at around 18-21C.  Germination usually begins after 14-21 days and can be slow.

Growing Instructions:  When seedlings are large enough to handle, pot up individually into 8cm pots and grow on in cooler conditions, around 15-18C. Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions before planting out in the garden in a sunny spot in well drained soil.
