Sow from late winter to early summer 6mm (0.25in) deep in a good seed compost. Make sure that the compost is moist but not wet, and seal in a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 30-90 days at 15-20C (60-70F).

Transplant when large enough to handle into 9cm (4in) pots and grow on cool and well lit. Later plant out 30cm (12in) apart into moist but well drained soil in sun or part shade.
