Sowing Indoors

Level a tray with seed compost firming with the base of another tray. Water well with a fine rose. Scatter seeds thinly over the surface, lightly covering with vermiculite. Place in a propagator at 18-25c or cover tray with clingfilm and leave in a warm room.

 

Growing On

When shoots appear, remove clingfilm. Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from direct sunlight. When plants are 5cm (2in) tall, transplant 5cm (2in) apart into small pots or module trays. Grow on in a minimum temperature of 10c.

 

Planting Out

Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out when risk of frost has passed. Allow 30cm (12in) between plants. Water well until established.

Growing Tips

Plant at the base of shrubs to allow its wiry flowering stems to meander through. Dead head spent flowers regularly to encourage more blooms.
