Sow in spring to autumn. Sow in moist well drained seed compost and do not cover.  Keep at 16-18C and germination takes 1-2 weeks.  Transplant seedlings into pots when they are big enough to handle and out into the garden when frost free.  Early spring sowings often flower in the first year.  Keep summer and autumn sowings in a greenhouse or cold frame over winter before planting out in spring.


These are evergreen plants and need little care once established.  Deadhead to prolong flowers and remove older leaves as necessary.
