Start off in a seed tray indoors and plant out in borders. Fill a seed tray with good, free-draining, damp, seed compost. Sow seed on the surface of the compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of dry vermiculite or finely sieved compost. Place the seed and tray in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag and keep at around 18-23C (65-75F) until the seeds germinate. This will take about 14-21 days. Don't exclude light as this helps germination.

When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them individually into 7.5cm (3") pots or multi-cell trays. Before planting out, acclimatise the plants to cooler conditions by putting them outside for a few hours a day for a few weeks. Plant out when all risk of frost has gone about 30-45cm (12-18") apart.

  1. Pleasant surprise

    By KIERAN MCGRATH 03-08-2016

    So impressed with this plant- seedlings need cosseting and looks rather a coarse plant till it begins to flower then the ugly ducking shows its true face. Floriferous and very beautiful.
