Sow seeds from February to April. Sow seeds on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Lightly cover the seed with vermiculite. Place in a propagator or sealed container inside a polythene bag and keep at a temperature of 20C (69F) until after germination which usually takes 14-21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30-45cm (12-18in) apart. Can also be planted in large containers in a moisture retaining multipurpose compost.

Best grown in a sunny part of the garden.
