Sow March to April in pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 15-20C (59-68F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination can take 1-3 months.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3 inch) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 1.2m (4 feet) apart.

For best results, provide a moist, well-drained soil in full sun or part shade. Can also be grown in containers of good, soil-based potting mix. Give a balanced liquid feed monthly during the summer. Water plants sparingly during winter and give frost protection in cooler regions.

  1. Disappointing

    By Daniel Rathbone 21-03-2015

    I've tried growing these plants from seeds on two separate occasions now, both times I've followed the instructions on the packet to the letter and ensured my temperatures are correct, but within 48 hours of sowing the seeds have rotted and you can tell this as small patches of mould appear on the surface of the compost directly above the seeds. After this happened the first time I made sure I kept the compost relatively dry for the second attempt, but sadly the same thing happened again. Disappointed.
