1 Packet (75 Seeds) (KB5904)

Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed compost, then lightly cover to 3mm (1/8") deep with vermiculite or compost. Place container in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag at a temperature of 18-20C (64-68F) until after germination which usually takes 10-15 days.

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle, taking care not to damage the fragile roots, into 9cm (4") pots. When roots have filled these pots, set into final containers.

Grow on in a sunny or semi-shaded position. Feed and water Cuphea plants regularly throughout the growing season. Move plants to a warm indoor position by the end of summer, for overwintering in warm frost free conditions.
