Sow indoors for surest results, from February to April, 0.5cm deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20Â°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Transplant them, 5cm apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, May-June, 20cm apart, when frosts are over. Or, sow outdoors for ease, from April to May, where they are to flower, 0.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings as required. Water well until plants are established. For a longer display, make further sowings. Flowers from June to September.
