Sowing Instructions – Sow seeds thinly in seed trays of seed & potting compost or 2-3 seeds in small pots and cover lightly with a little compost. Firm compost gently and water carefully. Keep in heated greenhouse / propagator at about 15-20C. Transplant into larger individual pots when 10cm tall. ‘Harden off’ plants for 3-4 days before finally planting them outside from May to June, at a spacing of 45cm between plants.
