Sow from early February to mid April in a good seed compost just covering the seed with a thin layer of compost or vermiculite. Germination takes 14-21 days at 20-24C (70-75F). Seal in a polythene bag after sowing and don't exclude light.

When large enough to handle, transplant the seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots, and grow on in cooler conditions. When well rooted, plant into baskets or container, using a good soil-less compost with some Sow-Lite (vermiculite) added. Leave in a shaded greenhouse for 2 weeks and then gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before moving outdoors, after all risk of frost has passed, to a sunny, sheltered spot.

Water well and feed once a week through the summer. To overwinter, bring indoors to a cool, frost free place in autumn and keep just moist. For a windowsill pot plant, grow on in a 13cm (5in) pot.

  1. Asarina Scandens Jewel Mixed.

    What a beautiful plant. The little delicate leaves are complimented by stunning blue flowers over a very long flowering period. Very easy to grow and it looks lovely growing through other plants.
