Sowing Guide

Early Sowing/Module Sowing

Sow the seeds on the surface of good quality compost in modules, pots or trays.
Cover the seeds with 2 - 3 mm of vermiculite or compost.
Place in a propagator or a clear polythene bag and seal. Germinate at the temperature suggested above.
When the seeds start to germinate move the container from the bag or propagator and place in a well lit location in cooler conditions but not cold. Protect from direct exposure to hot sun and frost.
Once the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant into 7.5 cm pots.
Grow on in a greenhouse or cold frame. Protect from frost.
Plant out when all risk of frost has passed and the plants are growing strong.
Harden off over 7 - 10 days before planting out to reduce shock.

Direct Sowing

It is advisable to start the plants indoors rather than sowing direct.

Growing On

Water young plants well until established.
The plants will benefit from having a thick mulch adding around the base of the plants to prevent the surrounding soil from drying out.
Water established plants well during dry conditions.
Add supports especially if growing in exposed areas.


Dead-head spent flowers regularly to prolong the flowering season and to prevent self seeding. If preferred however, allow the petals to drop off for the birds to enjoy the attractive seed pod.
