Sow indoors for surest results, February-April, 0.5cm (0.25″) deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20 degree C (60-68 degre F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Transplant seedlings, 5cm (2″) apart, to other trays when large enough to handle (always hold by a leaf, never by the stem). Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, May-June, 30cm (1′) apart, when frosts are over. Or, sow outdoors for ease, April-May, where they are to flower, 1.5cm (0.5″) deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 30cm (1′) apart. Water well until plants are established. Flowers: June-October.
