Cultivation

Soak the seeds prior to sowing for 2 hours in luke warm water (NOT TO HOT!!)
After soaking sow the seeds edge down thinly on the surface of a good quality moistened seed compost at min 18 max 25 deg C from Feb early April
Cover the seed Lightly and keep the compost moist (best done by soaking the tray in a tray of water rather than watering from the surface)
Germination should occur within 10 - 30 days.
Once large enough to handle the young plants can be transplanted into either 3" pots or tray cells.
Gradually acclimatise to outside conditions
A fortnightly feed with a potash based fertiliser (Tomato fertiliser) will encourage good growth and plenty of flowers.
Transplant to final position from late May onwards when all risk of frost has passed.
