Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-35 days. Transplant, 5 cm (2-inch) apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Always hold seedlings by a leaf, never by the stem.

Or, sow thinly, outdoors, May-June, in a seed bed, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5 cm (2-inch) apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn. Flowers: June-September, the following year.
