Germination can take from 1-3 months at 15-21C, to speed this up seal in a polythene bag after sowing and leave in a refrigerator for 3 weeks then place in warmth. Inspect regularly and remove if any start to germinate in the fridge. Transplant when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots. Move to a cold frame or plunge the pots up to their rims in a sheltered site outdoors and plant out in autumn 30cm apart.
