Sow February to March or June to September. Sow seeds on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost, then apply a fine sprinkling of vermiculite, just covering the seed. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at a warm temperature of 15-20C (60-68F) until after germination which usually takes 10-15 days. Take care not to provide too high a temperature, as this can prevent germination.

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out 15cm (6in) apart.

September sown plants should be overwintered in a coldframe, and planted out the following spring.

Prefers a moist, well drained soil in full sun or semi shade.
