CARE TIPS: Picking the flowers will encourage lateral growth and prolong flowering. Can be grown in a container pot.
Under glass, sow the seed thinly onto the surface of a good quality compost and keep at around 18°C. Keep the soil moist, but not wet, by watering with a spray bottle, and thin out when they are large enough to handle, potting them up into individual pots. Grow on and gradually harden off before planting out after all risk of frost has passed.
