Where to Sow

Sow seeds underglass 0.5cm (1/4 in) deep in pots or trays of damp, seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a constant temperature of 18–21°C.

What to do next

Prick out seedlings, once large enough to handle, into 9cm (3 1/2in) pots.
