Sowing Months Flowering Months Harvest Months
  • Sow seed 1cm (1/2in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of free-draining, seed sowing mix.
  • Place in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag and keep at 20-25°C (68-77F) until after germination which takes 7-21 days.
  • Do not exclude light as this helps germination.
  • Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 60cm (24in) apart.
  • Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Sow 2 seeds every 60cm (24in) and thin out to the best seedling.
  • Harvest fruits at the required size and store in a dry, airy place. Once dried, add to floral decorations or make varnished ornaments.
