Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of year except early to mid-summer.  Sow on the surface of a moist, free-draining seed compost in a pots or trays and just cover the seed with sieved seed compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal in a polythene bag and place in a greenhouse or windowsill indoors and maintain a temperature of 18 to 21C. Germination should take place in 14-30 days. Maintain a temperature of about 15C after germination and gradually increase ventilation by opening the bag or propagator vents.

Growing Instructions: When large enough to handle, pot up individually into 7-9cm pots and grow on in good light, but shaded from direct sunlight. Overwinter if necessary in a frost-free place. When plants are established, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out in late spring or early summer after all risk of frost has passed in a sunny position.
