Sow February to April. Sow seeds in pots or trays of moist seed compost. Do not cover the seed. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 24-27C (75-80F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 14 to 21 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3 inch) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise young plants to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 23cm (9 inches) apart, or transplant into containers.

For best results, provide a rich, well-drained soil in full sun.
