Sowing Guide

Early Sowing/Module Sowing

To help with germination, soak the seeds in clean water for 2 - 3 hours before sowing.
Sow one seed on it's edge in a small pot of good quality compost.
Lightly cover with some fine compost.
Place in a polythene bag and seal or place in a propagator. Germinate at a temperature suggested above.
Once the seeds start to germinate remove from the propagator or bag and place in a well lit area with a reduced temperature. Protect from frost and exposure to hot sun at this point.
Once large enough to handle transplant into 10 - 12 cm pots. One seedling per pot, add a support such as a thin cane for the young plant to start climbing up.
Grow on in frost free conditions, a greenhouse or cold frame is ideal.
Plant out when the cobaea plants are growing strong and all risk of frost has passed.
Harden off over 7 - 10 days before planting out.

Direct Sowing

For best results start the plants indoors.

Growing On

Plant the cobaea's next to their sturdy supports, a fence, archway or trellis etc.
The plants may need a little guidance to start growing up the support.
Water well until established.
Established plants will need regular watering especially if growing in containers.
They can be very vigorous, trim the plants as and when needed.


If kept indoors over the winter months the plant can be grown as a perennial.
