Sow from February to July in good seed compost, just covering the seed with compost or Sow-lite (Vermiculite). Germination takes 30-90 days at 18-20C (65-70F). Sealing inside a polythene bag after sowing until they germinate is helpful.

When large enough to handle, transplant the seedlings to boxes or 7.5cm (3 in) pots. When well grown gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out 30cm (12in) apart in moist, well drained soil in sun or part shade.
