Pre-chill seed for 3 weeks. Sow in winter or early spring in good free draining seed compost covering the seed with a light sprinkling of compost. Place out of doors in a cold frame or sheltered spot. Keep compost moist, protect from heavy rain but not from frost which is beneficial. Leave for about five weeks then bring into warmth of 13-18C.

Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out when well established into deep, moist loam in sheltered semi-shaded position.
