PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow under glass on the surface of seed compost, covering with a bare sprinkling of sieved compost or fine vermiculite. Place in a propagator at 15-20C (60-70F). Germination usually takes 21-40 days. Transplant into individual pots or modules when large enough to handle and plant in full sun in any reasonable soil. Early sowings will flower in their first year.|
