When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Plant out in a reserve border and move to their final positions in autumn planting 60cm (24in) apart in ordinary well drained soil and sun.
To dry, cut the stems when the lanterns start to show colour and hang upside down in a light airy shed.
