WHEN TO SOW
February to April
WHERE TO SOW
Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in posts 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 of between 21-25°C (70-75°F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination which usually takes 7-21 days.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
As soon as seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant 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.
June to October
Dead-heading will prolong life and increase flowering ability.
