Germinate at 20-30C (68-86F) on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Apply a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite, but do not cover the seed completely. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 10-21 days. Do not exclude light at any stage, as this helps germination.
Transplant, when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm(12in) apart.

These really are the most stunning flowers in such amazing shades of rust, gold and russet. The first batch I grew from seed didn't do so well as I hoped but they made it through winter and flowered their heads off this year. My second attempt proved much more successful and have been such a delight. They get quite tall so staking may be required unless they are able to lean up against other plants for support but certainly an eye-catching addition to the summer border. My plants are still going strong in late September - showing no signs of giving up just yet despite the pretty poor summer we've had.
