Sow thinly in pots or trays in a propagator on a windowsill or in a greenhouse in quality, moist compost at approximately 18-20ºC (64-68ºF), 6mm (¼") deep and lightly cover with compost or vermiculite (Germination 14-20 days). Transplant resulting seedlings spacing them out 5cm (2") apart in trays and grow on. Plant out 35cm (14") apart. Alternatively sow thinly direct into into finely raked, moist, warm & weed free soil 6mm (¼") deep. Thin seedlings out for final spacing of 45cm (18") apart.
Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers. Suitabel for cut flowers. Attractive to bees. Prefers full sun but grows well in sun or shade. Soak seed overnight before sowing to aid with germination.
