Sow in trays on a windowsill or in a greenhouse into good quality, moist seed compost at approximately 15-18°C (60-65°F). (Germination 21-30 days). Do not exclude light which assists germination. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle 5cm (2") apart in trays and grow on. Plant out about 30cm (12") apart in autumn. Can also be sown May to July in trays as above in a coldframe or cool greenhouse.

Ideal for beds and borders. Suitable for dried flowers. Prefers full sun.
