Sow outdoors where they are to flower from March to May. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth. Sow 0.5cm (1/4") deep and keep the ground moist after sowing. Once your seeds have germinated, thin the seedlings out so that they are 25cm (10") apart.

Water regularly until plants are fully established. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. Cut back old foliage to ground level in autumn.
