Sowing Instructions: Can be sown at any time of the year except early to mid summer. Sow the seeds thinly in pots or trays on the surface of moist, well drained seed compost. Do not cover seed. After sowing, seal container in a polythene bag and place in the fridge or other cold place at 2-5C for 2 weeks. Then bring into the warmth and propagate at 10 -15C out of direct sunlight. Germination can be slow and erratic, hence the need to sow the seeds thinly so that seedlings can be removed without disturbing the rest of the compost too much. Germination should begin after 30 days, but some seedlings may take a few months to appear.
Growing Instructions: Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots. Grow on until well established and plant out in spring 30cm apart in sun or shade with moist, well drained soil.
