Growing Instructions

Sow outdoors, April-July, in a seed bed, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 21-35 days. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2") apart, when large enough to handle. Keep moist and weed free. Plant out to flowering position in autumn, allowing 25cm (10") between plants. Or sow indoors, April-July, 0.5cm (¼") deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Transplant 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, 25cm (10") apart. Flowers: May-July, the following year.
