  • Sow thinly, 12mm (1/2in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart. Germination usually takes around 3 weeks.

  • For earlier flowering sow indoors in late January/February, individually into 7.5cm (3in) pots, keep at 20-30°C (68-86F). When well grown acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after all risk of frost.
