  • Growing Instructions:
    Indoor
    In medium-sized pots of compost, sow thinly, cover lightly with a fine layer of compost. Firm gently and keep moist. Cover with glass, polythene or propagator lid. Keep at approx. 20ºC. Germination may be slow and erratic. Seedlings appear 14-42 days
  • Care:Remove cover when seedlings appear. Thin out to approx. 5cm apart, leaving around half a dozen seedlings to grow on. Water sparingly, allowing compost to almost dry out between waterings.

  • Sow: January to December

  • Flower: July to October

  • Approximate quantity: 100 seeds.
  • Tip: Touching the plants too often can drain them of energy and shorten their lives. An occasional feed with a weak liquid fertiliser is recommended
