How to Sow
Sow in spring at 20C (70F) in a good seed compost. Sow seed on surface of compost and gently firm down compost. Keep soil damp but not wet. Sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Do not exclude light which is beneficial to germination. Germination usually takes 21-30 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Plant out in a reserve border and move to their final positions in autumn planting 60cm (24in) apart in ordinary well drained soil and sun.
