Sow in a propagator on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at approximately 15-20ºC (60-68ºF) using a good quality, moist seed compost. Cover the seeds with 6mm (¼") sieved compost. Transplant seedlings spaced out 5cm (2") apart in trays and grow on in good light. Acclimatise plants before planting 15-23cm (6-9") apart in an open sunny position. Alternatively sow thinly direct outside into finely raked moist, weed-free soil where the plants are to flower.

Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers, greenhouse. Prefers full sun. Remove dead flower heads to promote further flowering.
