Sowing
Sow early spring at 21C (70F) in a good free draining seed compost, just covering the seed. Germination usually takes 7-21 days.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cool conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost 30cm (12in) apart in a sunny spot on light well drained soil. For pot plants, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots, grow cool, well ventilated and give plenty of light, but shade from direct sun.
