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.

Sow any time of year. Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays . The seed needs light to germinate so only give it a light dusting of vermiculite or no covering at all . Seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at a temperature of between 20-25C (70-75F) After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged. Germination can be slow and erratic usually taking 14-90 days.

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.
