Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow under cover in autumn. Sow seed thinly onto the surface of a good quality, peat-free seed compost covering lightly with a thin layer of compost or vermiculite. Keep warm and moist till germination occurs. Pot seedlings on, good light levels, cool air temperatures (just above freezing) and warm roots are ideal for growing on. Overwinter in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Gradually harden off before transplanting outdoors in spring, space plants 30cm (12in) apart.
Care Tips Care Tips: A self seeding annual that requires well drained soil in a light sunny position. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. In very dry conditions or drought, you may need to water. Try collecting the seed to aid distribution in the garden border and retain it for further seasons.
Flowering May-June, if autumn-sown or June-July if sown in spring.
Harvesting May-June, if autumn-sown or June-July if sown in spring.
