Pre-chill seed for 3 weeks. Sow in winter or early spring in good free draining seed compost covering the seed with a light sprinkling of compost. Place out of doors in a coldframe or sheltered spot. Keep compost moist, protect from heavy rain but not from frost which is beneficial. Leave for about five weeks then bring into warmth of 13-18C (55-65P).

At two-leaf stage transplant seedlings to 8cm (3in) pots. Keep shaded from strong sunlight. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out when well established into deep, moist loam in sheltered semi-shaded position, spacing the plants 46-60cm (18-24in) each way.

  1. seeds took on lovely

    By Iwona Hunter 09-06-2012

    these seeds are apparently tricky to germinate, but mine took on nicely. Germinated them in the fridge in February and grew on inside. Outdoors they have been eaten by slugs in pots, but three the most robust survived and now they are growing in shaded part of my garden. I will hope that they flower in the future.
