Sowing
Sow seeds March to May. Sow seeds thinly, 12mm (1/2") deep in drills 45cm (18in) apart in well cultivated soil raked to a fine tilth or direct into small containers. Germination takes around 21 days. For earlier flowering: Sow indoors, individually in 7.5cm (3in) pots at 20-25C (68-77F). When well grown, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after all risk of frost has passed.

When large enough to handle, thin to 45cm (18in) apart.

More Info

It is wise to provide these tall stems with some added support as they grow.
