Sowing time: June to October.

Sow in pots or trays of good seed compost. Place in a propagator or a warm place, providing an optimum temperature of 20-22C (70-75F). Lightly cover with vermiculite to seeds own depth. After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged, germination will usually take 14-21 days.
