Sow February-May in pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with black plastic. Place in a propagator or a warm place, and keep at a temperature of between 15-21C (60-70F). After sowing keep an eye on sown seeds, and as soon as you see the seeds start to chit (grow a small white shoot) remove the black plastic and then lightly sprinkle vermiculite over the seeds . Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 21-80 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays.

Pots can then be either grown in a cool glasshouse through the summer, or plunged outdoors in a sheltered frame until the Autumn when they can be brought indoors and potted into 13-15cm (5-6in) pots. As flower stems develop feed once a week with a high potash feed.
