How to Guide

Sowing Indoors

Sow individually in small pots of moist seed compost, lightly covering the seeds. Place in gentle warmth 15-20C (60-70F).

Sowing Outdoors

Sow seeds 2cm (1in) deep in pre-watered soil about 15cm (6in) apart in a row or in groups. Keep the soil moist until seedlings are well established. This out if seedlings appear to be overcrowded.

Sowing Distance

60cm / 24in

Hardening Off/Planting Out

Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out to their flowering positions about 60cm (24in) apart from May onwards.
