Sow February to June or September to October. Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Do not cover the seed. Seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at a temperature of between 15-20C (59-68F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination can take 1 to 3 months.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3 inch) pots or trays. Plant out once plants are well grown, 23-30cm (9 to 12 inches) apart.

For best results, provide any ordinary, well-drained soil in full sun.

Caution: Irritant to skin and eyes. Harmful if eaten.
