Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow onto the surface of moist, but not waterlogged, compost in spring or autumn. (Please note that it is very difficult to fully isolate the seeds, so the packet will usually contain chaff.) It may be beneficial to cover with clear plastic until germination occurs, which should take 14-21 days. Prick out seedlings and grow on in a cold frame, planting out when all danger of frost is past.
