GROWING GUIDE

Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of year.  Sow very thinly on the surface of a moist, free-draining, good seed compost (eg. John Innes) and just cover the seed with sieved compost. Seal in a polythene bag and propagate at 13-15C on a windowsill or greenhouse/coldframe. Germination should take place in 1-4 months and can be erratic, hence the need to sow thinly so that seedlings can be removed without disturbing the compost too much.

Growing Instructions: When the seedlings are large enough to handle, pot up individually into small pots (7-9cm) and grow on in well-ventilated, cooler conditions. Overwinter in a frost free place. When established, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out in late spring in a sunny position and well-drained soil.  For the first few years and in very cold regions wrap in a fleece jacket in winter to protect from frost and make sure the roots and trunk are kept as dry as possible to prevent rotting.
