How to sow
Place seed on the surface of good free draining compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 15-20˚C (59-68F) until after germination which usually takes 18-21 days. Do not exclude daylight as this helps germination.
How to grow
Transplant seedlings, when large enough to handle, into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart. Overwinter autumn sowings in a coldframe or cool greenhouse and plant out the following spring.
