Occasionally a solid coloured bloom may also appear. Height: 40cm (16in).

Sow February to April. Sow seed on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed or multipurpose compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at a temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination which usually takes 7-21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart.
