When to Sow
February to April
June to October
Where to Sow
Sow seed on the surface of a good free-draining damp seed compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or a warm place at a temperature of 24-27°C (75-80°F) until after germination which usually takes 14-21 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep compost on the dry side at all times, and only water lightly as seedlings emerge.
What to do Next
Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12") apart.
Leave plants in borders overwinter and only trim lightly then cut back in Spring down to new growth as it starts to reappear
