Half Hardy Annual

Sow: Feb to May
Flowers: July to October
WHERE TO SOW
Sow seeds into pots or trays filled with a good seed sowing compost and lightly cover the seeds with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Germination usually takes 10-15 days at 15-18C (60-65F). Alternatively a direct sowing can be made during April and May where they are to flower.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart. Direct sown plants can be thinned out as required to 30cm (12in) apart.
