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
Seed viability is short, so sow all the seeds at once, thinly on the surface of good quality, moist compost, covering with a thin sprinkling of compost or fine vermiculite. Always keep the compost moist as if it dries out even once germination is likely to be prevented. Germination can be erratic, coming in waves from very fast to many months, but is usually much aided by constant warmth (at least 18C), so if possible use a heated propagator. Avoid full sun, which can burn young foliage. Pot on seedlings as they appear and grow on until large enough to plant out. Once established, a trouble-free plant. Cutting back after flowering encourages fresh, purple foliage. Split clumps from autumn to late winter. NOTE: All parts of the plant can cause irritation and/or allergic reaction. The sap can cause severe eye injury. Wear eye protection and gloves when handling.
