GROWING GUIDE

Sowing Instructions:  Sow at any time of year except mid summer as too much heat can cause the seedlings to become leggy and weak.

Sow on the surface of a moist, free-draining seed compost but do not cover the seed. Propagate at 10 to 12C, either indoors or outside, covering the container with a clear lid/bag to prevent the compost drying out too quickly.  Germination should begin to take place in 14 to 40 days. As soon as some of the seedlings begin to emerge, increase ventilation by opening the cover/bag.  Keep the compost moist but take care not to over-water.  If after 40 days, the seeds have not germinated, they may benefit from a cold spell of 2-5C for 2-4 weeks.

Growing Instructions:  Grow the seedlings on, shaded lightly from direct sunlight and when large enough to handle, pot up individually into 8 or 9cm pots.  When large enough, plant out into well-drained soil in a sunny position.
