When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots of good, soil-less compost. Grow on and re-pot into 13cm (5in) pots until the plants are of a good size before planting out. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost.
Best grown in containers filled with a good quality potting compost for an attractive feature plant either indoors or outside on the patio. Plants grown in containers are best moved into a cool frost-free greenhouse or conservatory to protect them over winter.
