Caution: Dust-like seeds. To open, first shake the packet to dislodge seeds that may have gathered in the seams. Then hold the foil packet over a sheet of white paper, cut along three sides and carefully open out flat. Tap the packet gently to dislodge seed on to the paper and pick them up for sowing from here. Do check the seams in the removed edges in case seed has remained lodged in the creases. Sow seeds from December to February. Sow seeds on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Do not cover the seed. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag and put in warm place, and keep at a temperature of around 24-27ºC (75-80ºF). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 15-60 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Then pot on into 13cm (5in) pots and grow on in a greenhouse or on a windowsill.

Regular deadheading as flowers fade will prolong the flowering period.
