Sowing
Sow April to May. Sow seeds 1cm (½ inch) deep in 7.5cm (3 inch) pots of free draining compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination which takes 7 to 10 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination. Seeds can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Sow 2 seeds every 90cm (36 inches) and thin out to the best seedling.

Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all risk of frost, 90cm (36 inches) apart.Prefers well-drained, moist, rich soil in full sun.
