For best results, provide a light, well-drained soil in full sun.

Sow seeds from February to April. Sow seeds on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and lightly cover the seeds with a thin layer of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag and put in warm place, and keep at a temperature of between 20-25C (68-77F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 10-21 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost 30cm (12in) apart or into containers spaced 15cm (6in) apart.
