Growing instructions:

Sow in spring or autumn.

 

Sowing under glass:

Fill a seed tray ¾ deep with peat-free compost, firm and water well. Sprinkle seeds very thinly on the surface and cover with a very light layer of fine compost or grit. Cover the tray with plastic or glass and keep moist and out of the sun.

 

Remove the cover when the first seeds germinate. Prick out seedlings into pots when the first true leaves develop. Grow on, and harden off outside, planting when conditions are suitable, ideally after frost and prior to some rain.

 

Sowing outside:

Prepare a fine seedbed. Sow the seeds thinly in patches, or in rows. Firm the soil to give a good seed/soil contact but do not cover the seeds. Keep moist.
