Sow indoors between February and April. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20 degrees Celsius (60-68 degrees Fahrenheit) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant them, 5 cm (2-inch) apart, to trays when large enough to handle (always hold by a leaf, never by the stem). Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, between May and June, 45 cm (18-inch) apart, into well-drained soil, when frosts are over. Enjoy the flowers from July to October.

Hints and Tips: Interesting seed pods are produced as flowers fade. Plants benefit from regular watering in very hot weather.

    another good seed. but expensive for what it is. have yet to see if it will germinate. i do wonder sometimes if you are paying for good quality seed or just the colourful packet.
