Sowing Indoors

  • For earlier flowering sturdier plants, sow in trays of moist seed compost from February to April to gentle warmth 10-15°C (50°F)
  • Transplant 5cm (2in) apart in a tray of compost when seedlings are large enough to handle
  • Gradually accustom to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out from April, 15cm (6 in) apart

 

Sowing Outdoors

  • Rake soil to provide a firm, even surface
  • Sow seeds thinly in a pre-watered soil, lightly covering them with a little more soil
  • Sowings made in a semi-circular lines create a natural ‘drift’ effect.
  • Keep moist until seedlings appear and as required in dry spells

 

Thinning

  • When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to allow their development and prevent overcrowding

Growing Tips

  • Mix seeds with silver sand as  this helps to bulk out the sowing mixture, making sowing over larger areas an easier task with less need for thinning
