Sow February to June or September to October. Sow seed on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place at a temperature of 18-29C (65-85F) in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 10-21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 45cm (18in) apart.
