Grow on

When large enough to handle, transplant into 12cm (5in) pots using a well draining compost, ideally with added grit. Slowly acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after frosts.

Plant out

Choose a sunny spot in any well-drained soil. Plant approximately 50cm (20in) apart. Alternatively, plant in a large container using good quality compost, ensuring free drainage. Equally suited to large pots, mixed borders and larger scale planting.
