Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow thinly, in spring or autumn, in a pot containing good quality seed compost, covering with 3mm sieved compost or fine vermiculite. It may aid germination to soak seed for 24 hours before sowing and/or nick the seed coat. Transfer seedlings to individual pots or modules and grow on until large enough to harden off and plant out in their final positions. Some sources suggest sealing in a plastic bag at 64-68F/18-20C, but this shouldn't be necessary.
