Sowing and/or growing instructions
Can be sown direct, lightly raked into the soil, thinning to approx. 18in apart. Alternatively, sow under cover in spring in modules or seed trays, at 68-77F/20-25C. Do not exclude light, which aids germination. Move into individual pots as the plants develop. Wait until frost no longer poses a threat before planting into open ground. Pinch out growing tips once the plants are about 9-12in tall, to encourage branching. Prefers a fertile, moist soil in full sun.
