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 outside in late autumn or early winter, in pots of good quality, moist compost, barely covering with a little sieved compost or fine vermiculite. Provide the protection of a cold frame if possible. A period of cold is required to aid germination, which should occur as spring commences. I understand that germination can be slow and erratic, sometimes taking 2 years, but my sowings have always germinated within the first year. Transplant seedlings and grow on, planting out when large enough.
