CAUTION: HARMFUL IF EATEN
Sow indoors for surest results, from February-May, 0.5cm deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place on a warm kitchen windowsill. A temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-42 days. Transplant individually, when large enough to handle, to 7.5cm pots. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, June-October, 45cm apart. Or, sow outdoors in a seed bed, May-July, 0.5cm deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Keep moist and weed free. Thin seedlings to 5cm apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn. Flowers from June to August.
