Sow February-May or September at 15-20°C (60-68°F) in pots or trays using a good quality compost, cover the seed lightly with a sprinkling of compost, or vermiculite. Place in a polythene bag or propagator and keep the soil moist at all times. When the seedlings are large enough to handle transfer and grow on in cooler conditions.  Acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 5-7 days.  Alternatively sow direct into the ground outside, rake in to a depth of 3cm (1") when the risk of frost has passed.

Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers. Attractive to pollinators. Prefers full sun.
