Sowing
Sow March to May thinly, 12mm (½in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart in well cultivated soil raked to a fine tilth. Germination usually takes around 21 days. When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to 30cm (12in) apart.

Alternatively, you can sow indoors in late winter/early spring for earlier flowering. Sow individually into 7.5cm (3in) pots at 20-30C (68-86F). When well grown, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after all risk of frost.
More Info
Grow in full sun in well drained soil. Protect from slug damage whilst young. Stake plants well with strong canes.
