Sowing advice

Can be sown at any time.  Sow in trays or pots . Surface sow onto moist well-drained seed raising mix. Just cover with mix. Seal in a plastic bag, and put into fridge, propagate  at approx. 4°C and keep moist. After 2 months then move out of the fridge to a shady place. Germination can be erratic and over several months. Some seeds may not germinate until the following spring.  As each seed germinates move it almost immediately  to its own pot.
