Sowing Instructions – On the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place at a temperature between 15-20°C (59-68°F). Do not exclude light as this helps germination which is usually 14-21 days. Too high a temperature can prevent germination.
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 23cm (9″) apart, or plant into containers. Overwinter September sowings in a cold frame then plant out the following spring.
Hints and Tips – Ideal for winter and spring displays as the cooler temperatures enhances the frills of the petals
