Sow March to May. Sow outdoors where they are to flower once the soil has warmed. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Sprinkle the seed thinly over the surface, then rake lightly to ensure seed is just covered. Alternatively, sow 1.5mm (1/16in) deep in drills, 30cm (12in) apart. Germination usually takes 14-21 days.

As seedlings germinate, thin out any that are too close together so that remaining plants are about 10cm (4in) apart. Regular removal of spent flowers will encourage further blooming.

Prefers a well drained soil in full sun.
