Sow me outside from March to May. I love any well-drained soil in full sunshine .Choose my home in the garden. Rake the ground so it is nice and fine and remove any big stones. Make narrow channels in the soil 30cm apart and scatter me very thinly along the rows. Water regularly.

When my seedlings are large enough to handle thin us out to 30cm apart so we have room to grow.

When my flowers die I will leave seed pods just like pepperpots. When they dry, turn upside down and shake them. See if I grow again next year.
