Sow late winter to mid spring at 13-15C (55-60F) in a good seed compost, just covering the seed with compost. Keep soil damp but not wet. Germination usually takes 7-21 days. Keep the soil temperature below 19C (65F).

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3in) pots and grow in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 15cm (6in) apart in a sunny spot.
