GROWING INSTRUCTIONS: Sow indoors for surest results, January-March, 0.5cm (¼") deep, in trays of moist 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 7-21 days. Transplant seedlings, 5cm (2") apart, to other trays when large enough to handle (always handle by a leaf and never by the stem). Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, May-June, 45cm (18") apart, when frosts are over. Or, sow outdoors for ease, April-May, where they are to flower, 0.5cm (¼") deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 45cm (18") apart. Water well until plants are established.
