    WHERE TO SOW

    Under cover sow seeds onto the surface of a good free draining seed compost. Do not cover the seed as light helps germination. Place at a temperature of 15°C (60°F) until after germination which usually takes 10-21 days.

    WHEN TO TRANSPLANT

    Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into pots and grow on until larger. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out in a cold frame 30cm (12") apart. Later sowings should be overwintered in a cold frame for planting out the following spring.

    FLOWERS

    May to July the following year.

    HANDY TIP

    the large vibrant blooms are perfect planted in a border of hot colours.
