Sow in warm areas any time. In frost prone areas when danger of frost is over. Sterilise the seed raising mix by placing in an oven for 30 minutes at 180ºC. Fill a 15cm (6in) pot to within 2-3cm (¼in) from the top with moist sandy soil and compress. Sow seeds on top of soil but do not cover. It is beneficial to add Wildflower Seed Starter granules to soil surface. Place pot in a shallow container and pour in water to submerge one quarter of the pot. Top up as required. Cover pot with clear polythene – remove polythene when germination commences. Place in warm shady position.
