Sow February to March onto the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed compost and lightly cover the seed with fine grade vermiculite. Place the seed container in a warm place at a daytime temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) and allow this to be reduced slightly overnight to aid germination. Germination usually takes 3-15 days. Do not exclude light at any stage as this helps germination.

Transplant seedlings, when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3 inch) pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12 inches) apart.
