Sow in early spring 1.5mm (1/16in) deep in any good seed compost. Make sure that the compost is moist but not wet and seal in a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 10-18 days at 18-21C (65-70F). Seed can also be sown outdoors in mid spring 6mm (0.25in) deep where they are to flower and thinned out.

Transplant when large enough to handle into boxes and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart in a sunny spot on light well drained soil.

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.
