Sow in pots or direct into the garden 5mm deep. Germination can be slow and erratic so sow several seeds per planting. Transfer to large pots or containers when seedlings are 10cm tall, and to final growing position in full sun or light shade when large enough to handle and danger of frost has passed. Ensure temperatures remain above 20°C. Seedlings emerge 14-21 days.
