Sowing advice
Sow in autumn and early spring in pots or trays on the surface of good sterilised seed raising mix. Cover with just a sprinkle of soil as light is required for germination. Keep constantly damp , but dont waterlog the seeds and maintain a constant temperature of 20 deg C. Germination can be erratic, and sometimes takes up to 50 days. Once the seeds have germinated keep them at cooler temperatures.
Transplant to individual pots as soon as the seedlings can be handled, as the long tap root is sensitive to disturbance.
