Sow indoors:Â January to December, in medium-sized pots of compost. Sow thinly, cover lightly with a fine layer of compost. Firm gently and keep moist. Cover with glass, polythene or propagator lid. Keep at approx. 20oC. Germination maybe slow and erratic. Seedlings appear 14-42 days. Remove cover when seedlings appear. Thin out to 5cm apart, leaving around half a dozen seedlings to grow on. Water sparingly, allowing compost to almost try out between waterings.
