Sowing, Seeds, Planting Grow in moderately fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Half-hardy annuals will require protection until after the last frosts. Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions for 7-10 days before moving to their final position. For growing in pots, use as large a container as possible, as this won't dry out so quickly and will require less watering. As a general guide we recommend 9-10 plants to a 40cm (16in) diameter container. Put plenty of crocks in the bottom for drainage and part-fill with a good quality, multi-purpose peat-free compost. Position your plants and backfill with compost ensuring the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface, water well to settle the soil.
Care Tips Bring indoors to over-winter. They are often grown as an annual but they also make excellent houseplants with very little care required.
