Sow March to May. Sow seed in individual pots or module trays of moist seed compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 20-25C (68-77F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 10 to 24 days.Can also be sown once the soil has warmed, 3mm (1/8 inch) deep in drills 30cm (12 inches) apart in well-cultivated soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 23cm (9 inches) apart.

For pot grown seed - when well grown, gradually acclimatise young plants to outdoor conditions for 10 to 15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 23-30cm (9 to 12 inches) apart, taking care not to damage the root system.

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