Sowing instructions: Sow from late winter to summer on the surface of a good, gritty, free-draining seed compost. Make sure the compost is moist but not wet and sow very thinly. After sowing seal inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 21-60 days at 13-15C. If no germination has occurred after this period, place in a fridge and leave at 3-5C for 2-3 weeks, then return to 13-15C. Inspect regularly whilst in the fridge and remove immediately if they start to germinate.
Planting instructions: Sunny, sheltered spot. Well draining soil.
