|Sowing time:||late winter or early spring.|
Sow in heated greenhouse, propagator or warm position indoors using a peat based seed compost. Aim for a soil temperature of 21C (70F). Sow thinly on the surface of moist compost and do not cover the seed. Light improves germination. Cover the container with a sheet of glass or clear plastic until the seeds germinate, then remove the cover and lower temperature to 12-15C (55-60F).
Prick out when large enough to handle into 5cm (2in) pots. Finally pot up into 13-15cm (5-6in) pots.
