Sowing Months Flowering Months

Sow February to April. Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover the seed with a very fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a temperature of between 20-25C (68-77F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 14-30 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise young plants to outdoor conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 23-30cm (9-12in) apart or plant into baskets and containers of good multi-purpose compost.
