Useful/additional information Sow March to April. Soak seeds overnight in cold water before sowing. Sow at 20-30C (68-86F) on the surface of a free draining, damp seed compost. Cover with a layer of compost, 6mm (1/8 inch) deep. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag until after germination which takes 1-21 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. Transplant when large enough to handle into 13cm (5 inch) pots. Grow on in cooler, well lit conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12 inches) apart. For pot plants, plant into loam-based soil in 2cm (8 inch) pots. Prefers a sunny, sheltered, warm site. Flowers mid summer to autumn.
