|Sowing time:||February to July.|
Sow just covering the seed with compost. Use good seed compost which is moist but not wet and seal inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 21-40 days at 18-24C (65-75F). If no germination after 3-4 weeks place in a refrigerator, and leave at 3-5C (37-47F) for 2-4 weeks, then return to warmth. Inspect regularly while in the fridge and remove immediately if they start to germinate. Seed sown early will often flower the same season.
Transplant when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Later plant out 30cm (12in) apart into moist but well drained soil in sun or part shade.
