1 packet (110 physalis seeds) (23888)

Sowing
Sow in spring at 20C (70F) in a good seed compost. Sow seed on surface of compost and gently firm down compost. Keep soil damp but not wet. Seal in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Do not exclude light which is beneficial to germination. Germination usually takes 21-30 days.

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.

More Info

To dry, cut the stems when the lanterns start to show colour and hang upside down in a light airy shed.
