Sowing time/depth Late winter to early spring, May-December
A lovely climber with attractive, divided, mid-green foliage and masses of small, tubular blooms in shades from deep-red to orange from late spring and well into autumn. If grown in a sheltered position it will sometimes survive a mild winter in the UK, but is more usually grown as a half-hardy annual. Sow early for flowering in its first year.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow thinly on the surface in a small pot of good quality compost from January-March and barely cover with a sprinkling of fine vermiculite. Place pot in propagator or plastic bag, but do not exclude light as this aids germination, which should take 14-28 days. Aim to maintain a temperature of 60F/15C. Prick out seedlings as soon as they are large enough to handle, growing on in 3in pots. Harden off before planting out when all risk of frost is past.
