Sowing Guide

Early Sowing/Module Sowing

Sow the seeds on the surface of moist compost in trays, modules or pots.
Lightly cover with vermiculite or fine compost.
Place in a clear polythene bag and seal or if preferred place in a propagator. Do not exclude light as this will aid germination.
Keep the compost moist but not sodden.
As soon as germination has started remove from the bag or propagator and place in cooler but not cold conditions. Protect from direct exposure to hot sun at this point.
When large enough to handle transplant into 7 - 10 cm pots.
Grow on in frost free conditions in a greenhouse or cold frame is ideal. plant out when all risk of frost has passed and the plants are growing strong.
Harden off over 10 - 15 days before planting out.

Direct Sowing

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

Growing On

Water the young plants well until established.
During the growing season water moderately and apply a balanced liquid fertilizer ever 2 - 3 weeks.
If growing in a slightly exposed area provide supports for the plants as they grow taller.


Dead-head spent flowers to encourage more blooms to grow.
