Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow under cover in early spring. Use a good quality seed compost, sow seeds into trays, modules or pots at a depth of 1.5cm, keep the soil moist, germination should occur within 2-3 weeks. Prick out and pot on when seedlings are 2-3cm (1 inch) tall and have developed a pair of 'true' leaves. If you have sown into modules/pots then allow roots to fill their individual modules before potting on. Once germinated, good light levels, cool air temperatures (just above freezing) and warm roots are ideal for growing on. All-round light is also important in forming strong, bulky plants. Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions for 7-10 days before moving to their final position. Also thrives from being sown direct where they are to flower in late spring.
Care Tips Deadhead to prolong flowering. This is an ideal plant for a container pot. Keep the soil moist.
