Sow March to May. Germinate at 20-30C (68-86F) on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Do not cover the seed. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 10-21 days. Do not exclude light at any stage, as this helps germination.

Transplant seedlings, when large enough to handle, into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 23-30cm (9-12in) apart. After flowering, trim plants lightly to encourage a second flush of blooms.

Prefers a moist, well drained soil in semi shade; avoid direct sun.

  2. Glorious colours

    By M Williams 26-08-2012

    Even after the terrible summer in the north of England these little gems have flowered their socks off! I kept deadheading and the flowers kept coming. The colours are so bright and cheerful. Looked brilliant planted round the edge of my wildlife pond and in baskets. Easy to grow from seed and trouble- free.
