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
It is recommended to refrigerate these seeds if you do not plan to sow them immediately. Best sown in early autumn. Nick or file the seed coat and place in quite hot water. Leave to soak for 12 hours or so, then sow shallowly in a good quality compost, covering with a thin layer of grit or vermiculite. Stand outside, where the seed will receive the last of the year's warmth, followed by the cold of winter (both steps can be created artificially - 2-3 months at about 60F and then 3-5 months in the fridge, sealed in a plastic bag).
