Preparation and Sowing
Before you sow, soak the seeds for 48 hours to improve germination rates.
- You can sow directly where you want the plants to flower between May and June.
- For early blooms, sow indoors between March and April. Use a sunny windowsill or propagator for warmth.
Seedling Care and Transplanting
Indoor Seedling Care
Once germinated, prick out seedlings into individual pots and grow them on until the risk of frost has passed. Then transplant them to their final position.
Outdoor Seedling Care
If you’ve sown the seeds outdoors, thin out the plants to about 30 cm apart once they’ve germinated.
