Sow spring to mid summer in a good seed compost just covering the seed with compost. Germination can take from 1-3 months at 15-21C (60-70F), to speed this up seal in a polythene bag after sowing and leave in a refrigerator (3-5 C) for 3 weeks then place in warmth (15-21 C). Inspect regularly and remove if any start to germinate in the fridge.

Transplant when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Move to a coldframe or plunge the pots up to their rims in a sheltered site outdoors and plant out in autumn 30cm (12in) apart.

Plant in moist well drained soil, sun or part shade. Seed sown early will often produce flowers the same season.

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