Sow finely and evenly in late winter or early spring.
Cover thinly with compost, grit, vermiculite or perlite. Keep moist and covered with temperatures of about 20°C (68°F) for
2-3 weeks followed by a cooling period of at least 6-8 weeks. Seeds will germinate in the spring.
Transplant seedlings into larger pots and gradually acclimatize to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days
before planting out.
Cut down the first flower stems for another good display from late summer going into autumn.
