Planting & Harvesting
Sow & Grow
Sow indoors for surest results, March-May, 0.5cm (¼") deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or on a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant seedlings, when large enough to handle, 5cm (2") apart, to other trays. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, September-October, 15cm (6") apart. Or, sow outdoors, May-June, in a seed bed, 0.5cm (¼) deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2”) apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn. Flowers: March-May, the following year.
Hint's & Tips
If transplanting to their flowering positions during a dry spell, water the ground well before planting out, as this will help them to establish.
