Plant in a well drained soil in full sun. It may be necessary to provide a light stake in windy gardens.
Sow on the surface of a good free draining seed compost from late February to June. Make sure the compost is moist but not wet and seal inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 10-40 days at 20-30°C (70-85F). Reducing soil temperature at night aids germination.
Transplant when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Later plant out 30cm (12in) apart.

A Tough Plant! 2014-08-27
I like to mention that this can be a first year flowering perennial. I planted my seeds in March, put the small pot in a freezer bag to create a humid environment. The seeds came up within days. I wasn't expecting this to flower this year but it just has! I planted them in a barren plot of soil and had to go away for six weeks this year. Imagine my delight to come home to a beautiful display of flowers! This plant is tough as old boots. Cats do like this plant a lot by the way. One of my cats chews on a leaf or two every day for his daily 'fix'!
