Sowing advice
Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring. Cover seeds very thinly with seed raising mix to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take a long time to appear, even months, so keep an eye on the tray ensuring it does not dry out .
