Sowing instructions: Sow seeds onto the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a plastic bag at a temperature of 15-20C until after germination which usually takes 14-21 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. Alternatively, sow in late summer in a cool greenhouse and then overwinter plants in cool, well lit conditions. Plant out the following spring. This method produces larger plants and is recommended if the soil is heavy or badly drained.


Planting instructions: Prefers a well cultivated soil in a sheltered position. Full sun or partial shade
