Sow indoors, January-April, to flower the same year, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place on a warm windowsill. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant them, 5cm (2″) apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, May-September, 25cm (10″) apart, when frosts are over. Or, sow outdoors to flower the following year, May-July, in a seed bed, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 10cm (4″) apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn, spacing 25cm (10″) apart. Flowers: June-October.
