For winter flowers sow mid summer 1.5mm (1/16in) deep in good seed compost excluding light as darkness is beneficial. Germination usually takes 14-21 days at 19C (65F). Keep the soil just moist and avoid high temperatures which will prevent germination.

For summer flowers sow late winter/spring, treat as above and plant out late spring or late summer, when they should be moved to a coldframe and planted out in early spring.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow cool and plant out in autumn 23-30cm (9-12in) apart in most soils, sun or part shade.
