Sow Sweet Cicely seeds indoors or under glass from March to May in pots or trays of moist seed compost at a depth 1cm (1/2"). After sowing, keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged, and do not exclude light as this helps germination. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 15-20C (64-68F) or seal inside a clear polythene bag until germination which takes 21 - 28 days.
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in cooler conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise Sweet Cicely plants to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting outdoors. Plant Sweet Cicely at a distance of 45cm (18") apart on any moist, rich fertile soil in dappled shade.
