Sow indoors

Jan-March, Sept-Oct: Almost fill 12cm (5in) pots with seed & cutting compost. Sow five seeds, evenly spaced, per pot and lightly cover with a little more compost. Water well after sowing, but not again until seedlings have emerged. Place in warmth 10-15°C (50-60°F). Grow on in unheated conditions, ideally in a cold frame. Pinch out the growing tips to encourage bushier plant growth and more flowers.

Sow outdoors

March-April: Sow seeds in pre-watered, warm soil 2cm (1in) deep, 10cm (4in) apart. Keep soil moist until seedlings emerge.

Plant out

March: Plant out 20cm (8in) apart from March onwards in a sunny position. Support young plants with canes, netting or trellis to about 1.8m (6ft).

Tips

Feed and water plants regularly, pick flowers often to ensure continuous supply. September – October sowings produce the most vigorous and earliest flowering plants. Seedlings are best overwintered in a cold frame or under cloches.
