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 in good quality compost, just covering the seed with a little sifted compost or fine vermiculite at 21C/70F. Germination usually takes 7-21 days. Transplant seedlings into individual pots or modules when large enough to handle and grow on, acclimatising to outside conditions and planting out in a sunny position after all risk of frost is past. NOTE: Externally sourced seeds.
