Sowing instructions: Sow seed immediately on receipt, in pots or trays of moist peat/sand mix compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 20-25 Celsius. After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 1-4 months.

Planting instructions: Re-pot further as necessary and grow on indoors in cool, light and well-ventilated conditions. Plants can be moved outdoors during the summer months
