Sow late February-April for greenhouse growing (or April for outdoors) in a propagator on a windowsill or pots or trays in a greenhouse at 18-21°C (65-70°F) using a quality compost. Cover seeds with 6mm (14") sieved compost. (Germination 7-14 days). Transplant seedlings singly into 75mm (3") pots. Grow on, finally planting into large pots, grow bags or direct into the greenhouse border; or outdoors 45cm (18") apart when frost risk has passed. Feed regularly and side-shoot as necessary.
Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers, greenhouses, raised beds. Prefers full sun. Plants will require side shoots to be removed and the plant will need to be tied onto a support, such as a cane.
