Sowing
Sow May to June, transplant in autumn. Sow seed outdoors in a spare piece of ground or nursery bed. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing 12mm (1/2") deep, in rows 30cm (12in) apart. Thin out plants to 15-30cm (6-12in) apart to get plants large enough for transplanting in autumn.Alternatively mix the seed with another annual wild flower and scatter thinly when sowing your wild flower border or meadow. Thin out as necessary. Plants will self seed in following years after flowering.

Space the plants 30cm (12in) apart in full sun or part shade.
