GROWING GUIDE

Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of year except early-mid summer.  Sow onto a moist, free-draining seed compost in a plug tray or seed tray. Do not cover seed and propagate at 15 to 18C. Germination should begin to take place after about 7-10 days. When sowing in the summer, make sure the temperature does not rise above 20C as this may reduce the rate of germination.

Growing Instructions: Grow the seedlings on at 10C and until established. then pot up individually into 9cm pots or 3 plants into 1 litre pots. Maintain in pots and over winter as necessary in a cool, well-ventilated place. Plant out from May onwards.

Caution: Harmful if eaten.
