Sowing Months Flowering Months
Soak the seed for 2 hours in lukewarm water before sowing. Sow late winter to early spring at 18-24C (65-75F) in a good seed compost. Sow the seeds on their edge and just cover with compost. Keep soil damp but not wet, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 21-30 days.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 13cm (5in) pots and grow on in cooler conditions keeping them well watered. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost 60cm (24in) apart in a sheltered spot in sun on ordinary well drained soil. For summer flowering under glass, transplant into 20-23cm (8-9in) pots, and keep the atmosphere fairly humid.
