Sow & Grow
Sow indoors for surest results, February-April, 0.5cm (0.25″) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or on a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-35 days. Pot on individually, when large enough to handle, to 7.5cm (3″) pots. Always hold seedlings by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, September-October, 30cm (1′) apart. Or, sow outdoors, April-June, in a seed bed, 0.5cm (0.25″) deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2″) apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn. Flowers: March-June, the following year.
