WHERE TO SOW  
On the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or in a warm place and keep at a temperature between 21-25°C. Do not exclude light as this helps germina-tion which usually takes 7-21 days.                               

WHAT TO DO NEXT  
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12″) apart in well-drained soil in full sun.  

HANDY TIP
Stunning planted on masse in a border as an eye-catching feature.
