Place seed on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 18-20C until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots. Plant in final situation when 20cm high, 45cm apart. Remove sideshoots regularly.
