Pinch out tips when plants have 4 pairs of leaves. If autumn sown, overwinter in a light, cool place. Plant two plants to a vertical support, 15cm (6in) apart in a mild spell in March-May.
    Care Tips Remove the climbing tendrils as they grow. Tie the stem into your framework on a regular basis. These can be grown in deep container pots up a climbing frame. Keep picking flowers as they form to prolong the flowering period.
