Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow indoors, January-March. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow, 0.5cm (¼") deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 20-25°C (68-77°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant them, 5cm (2") apart, to further 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, 23cm (9") apart, when frosts are over. Flowers: June to October.

Hint's & Tips

To encourage a bushy habit and more flowers, pinch out the central growing tips when plants are 1cm (4") high.
