When to Sow: Sow March to May outdoors in flowering position.  Can also be sown outdoors in September in mild areas for early flowers the following year.

Sowing: Sow 3mm deep directly into well raked, moist soil.  If sowing in rows, leave 30cm between rows.  Provide protection from slugs and snails. Germination takes about 21 days.

Growing: When the seedlings are large enough to handle, thin to 25cm apart.  Once the plants start to flower, deadhead or cut the flowers regularly to encourage more flowering.
