Sowing Months Flowering Months

For flowering in the same season sow in early spring in good free draining seed compost, just covering the seed with compost. Germination usually takes 10-21 days at 13-15C (55-60F).

If sown in late spring/early summer outdoors 1.5mm (1/8in) deep in well prepared seed bed, and transplanted when large enough to handle, 'Foxy' will flower in early summer the next season.

When the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant into boxes, grow cool and finally plant out 30cm (12in) apart in sun or part shade in free draining soil.
