A little experience

A little experience

For the best results, plant in a good well-drained soil and grow in full sun.

Once plants are established prune each year after flowering, reducing shoots by approximately one-third.

Sow March- May. Soak seeds in hand hot water for 24 hours. Then sow seed 6mm (0.25in) deep into pots or trays. Keep in a warm place at a temperature of between 15-21C (60-70F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 14-30 days. When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays.

Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost 60cm (24in) apart.
