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 thinly, in spring or autumn, in a pot containing good quality seed compost, covering with 3mm sieved compost or fine vermiculite. Seal in a plastic bag and aim to maintain a temperature of 64-68F/18-20C It may aid germination to soak seed for 24 hours before sowing. Transfer seedlings to individual pots or modules and grow on until large enough to harden off and plant out in their final positions.|
