GROWING GUIDE

Pre-sowing Treatment: Soak in warm water for 12 hours or until the seeds start to swell.

Sowing Instructions: Can be sown at any time of year.  Sow 10mm deep in moist (not wet), free-draining seed compost in 9cm pots and cover with sieved compost or vermiculite. Seal in a polythene bag and propagate at 18-21C in good light but out of direct sunlight. Germination usually takes up to 21 days.

Growing Instructions: When seedlings have emerged, remove from polythene bags and grow on in cooler conditions – about 16-18C. Provide support as necessary and re-pot into 1 litre pots before planting out when large enough as conditions allow - generally late spring is best. Prune back to desired shape after flowering each year.
