Sowing Months Flowering Months
  • Sow seed on the surface of good free draining compost and cover with a light sprinkling of compost or vermiculite.
  • Seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 15-21°C (59-70F) until after germination which usually takes 2-4 weeks. Do not exclude daylight as this helps germination.
  • Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle, into 7.5cm (3in) pots and acclimatise to outdoor conditions. Transplant into flowering site, 30cm (12in) apart, in the autumn for flowering the following year.
  • Can also be sown outdoors 6mm (1/4in) deep, in rows 30cm (12 in) apart. Later thin out seedlings to 30cm (12in) apart.
