Sow indoors in pots or trays into moist well-drained seed compost in spring. Cover to about 15mm deep. Exclude light. Propagate at 18-20°C. Germination takes 10-21 days. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle to 8cm pots. Pinch out growing points when the plant is 8cm tall to encourage a bushy habit. Plant out as the weather warms with 25cm spacing. Can be sown where they are to flower from Oct-November.
