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.
