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 in early spring under glass or direct from April on the surface of seed compost, covering with a sprinkling of sieved compost or fine vermiculite, at 16-18C/60-65F. Germination usually occurs within 7-14 days. Grow seedlings on in individual pots or modules, planting out after all risk of frost has passed. Please note that these seeds have been collected from white plants, but I cannot guarantee that all will come true.
