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).

NOTE: Externally sourced seeds.

Sowing and/or growing instructions
Most sources suggest sowing January to March, but in my experience, later sowings - up to mid-way through April - are more reliable, particularly in an unheated hreenhouse, and the plants soon catch up. Soak overnight and/or nick the seed coating, then sow singly in modules or two to a 3in pot, at a depth of 0.25in/6mm, under glass . Pinch out growing tips of seedlings when they are a few inches tall. Acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out in soil that is not too fertile when all risk of frost has passed, providing support.
