Sowing advice

Sow in Spring and summer in seed trays or pots. Sow indoors into a moist well-drained seed raising mix. Cover very thinly as the seeds need light to germinate. Propagate at 18 -23 deg C. Germination takes 5-14 days. Transplant seedlings once large enough at 35-40 cm apart after danger of frost has passed.
