Sow early spring to early summer outdoors where they are to flower. Fork the ground over, firm it across and then rake until it has a fine lump free surface. Scatter the seeds very sparingly and lightly rake them in. Alternatively, for easier management, sow 3mm deep in rows 30cm apart. Germination usually takes approximately 14 days. When the seedlings are large enough to handle thin out to 2-3cm apart. The thinnings can be very carefully lifted with a trowel and transplanted elsewhere. They prefer a sunny open site in ordinary well drained garden soil. Keep weed free and provide a little support of twiggy sticks.
