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
Seeds need a cold spell to break dormancy, so sow during the winter or in early spring outdoors, in a pot of good quality compost, covering with a fine sprinkling of sand or grit to a depth of no more than 3mm. If no seeds germinate after a couple of months, place pot in a plastic bag and keep in the fridge for 28 days. Do not discard the pot, because germination can take many months.
