Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
  • Place seed on the surface of a free draining, damp compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite.
  • Seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 15-20°C (59-68F) until after germination which can take 1-6 months. Do not exclude daylight as this helps germination.
  • Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle, into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 60cm (24in) apart.
  • Autumn sowings can be overwintered for planting next spring.
  • For drying, cut stems when the lanterns start to show colour, hang upside down in a light airy position.
