Sow Heliopsis seed from February to June on the surface of a good seed compost, and cover with a light sprinkling of compost of vermiculite. Place in a propagator at a temperature of 18-25C (64-77F) or seal the seed tray inside a polythene bag until after germination, which usually takes up to 30 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in cooler conditions. When Heliopsis plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting outdoors. Grow Heliopsis plants at a distance of 45cm (18") apart in full sun in rich, fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil.
