Sow in a seed bed directly. Thin as necessary and transplant to flowering position in autumn. Harden off and plant out in September or October, spacing 6-8in (15-20cm) apart. Alternatively, sow in trays of compost. Just cover the seed and keep moist at 15-20C (60-68F). Germination will take 10-21 days. Thin (prick out) to further pots or trays when seedlings have developed 2-4 leaves.
Keep this plant moist.
