Apart from cutting back flowering stems as the flowers fade to encourage further flower production they require very little attention and can be left undisturbed for years. Hardiness: They are cold hardy and can be grown in the UK, Europe, N. America (zones 6-10), Japan and Australia, temperate and cold zone climates. They will tolerate heat but not heat and humidity.
Pricking out (Transplanting); When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them individually into 7.5cm (3 in) pots of a similar potting compost. Grow the plants on at 13-15C (55-60F) in good ventilation and light. Planting out; When well rooted into their pots stand them out in a cold Frame or outside in a shady, sheltered part of the garden to acclimatise them to outdoor conditions for around 10-15 days and then plant them into their flowering positions. They can be planted from spring to early autumn; summer sown plants which are not large enough to be planted out by autumn, should be left in a coldframe, or similar, for the winter and planted out the following spring. Plant singly or in groups, allowing 60cm (24in) between each plant and water them well after planting, particularly if the weather is hot or dry.
