Sow February to March. Soak seed in warm water for 24 hours before sowing. Place seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at a temperature of between 15-20ºC (59-68ºF). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination usually takes 14-30 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Plant out once plants are well grown, 1.5m (5ft) apart or transplant into 25cm (10in) containers. For best results, provide a moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Do not feed plants, but water well.

Provide a minimum winter temperature of 7C (45F) and reduce watering over the winter. Plants require minimal pruning, simply removed old flower heads, although plants can be cut back to base during spring to rejuvenate every few years.

Caution: toxic if eaten.

  1. These are so easy to grow

    By Peter Humphrey 21-11-2011

    For a real impact in the garden these are a must. They germinate very easily and mine bloomed in the first year.Sitting in the garden on a summer's evening is a real pleasure for the scent is quite something!. I have pruned some hard to form medium size bushes and let some grow full height and then grouped together ...a real spectacle when in bloom.They produce plants from cuttings quite easily. For overwintering in the greenhouse/consevatory prune back hard to save on space and water sparingley. Then next year they will bloom all over again.
