Sorry - we have had to temporarily suspend accepting new orders both online and by phone. We are experiencing unprecedented demand, and to maintain our high levels of customer service we need time to catch up processing existing orders. We are working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to catch up and hope that our site and order line will be open again in the next few days.

Sowing
Sow at any time of the year on the surface of a good seed compost but do not cover with compost. Sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Do not exclude light. Germination takes 10-20 days at 20-30°C (70-85F).

When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3in) pots and finally 15cm (6in) pots.

More Info

In the home, grow in a well lit spot, in the greenhouse provide a little shade. Remove the flower spikes as they will weaken the plant.
