Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

For outdoor plants in summer, sow indoors, February-April, 0.5cm (¼") deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant seedlings, 5cm (2") apart, to other trays when large enough to handle (always hold by a leaf, never by the stem). Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, May-June, 20cm (8") apart, when frosts are over. For use as indoor pot plants, sow indoors at any time of year. Pot seedlings on individually, to 15cm (6") pots and keep in a light, airy location.

Hint's & Tips

Pinch out the growing tip when plants are about 15cm (6") tall, to encourage bushy growth. Remove flower spikes to keep foliage at its best.
