Sow in early spring 3mm (1/8in) deep at 21-27C (70-80F) in a good seed compost. Soaking the seed for 2 hours in cold water before sowing is helpful. Keep compost damp but not wet, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 5-14 days.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3in) pots and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost 30-45cm (12-18in) apart in a sunny spot on light well drained soil. Train up canes or trellis or grow as ground cover. For containers, after planting place the container in a sheltered spot for a few days to help the plants become established before moving to their permanent positions.

Caution: toxic if eaten.

  1. Luminous colour

    By fiona law 24-10-2011

    Once it's away, the flowers are prolific with luminous reddish purple flowers that really seem to glow from the centre of the trumpet. They scambled through my outside cordon tomatoes and climbing beans making a lovely display in the morning. Delightful colour clash with yellow tomato 'Golden Sunrise'!
