Conditions  Grow in full sun and well-drained soil.
Sow

Sow in autumn or early spring in a tray or pots of moist seed compost and cover with 6-10mm of compost.  Keep at 18-23C and seedlings emerge in 1-2 weeks.  Pot on and grow until the plants are ready to plant out in late spring.  Keep autumn sowings in a greenhouse or cold frame over winter.   Or sow directly into cultivated soil in late spring (May and June).  

Grow

Water young plants regularly, especially if grown in pots.  Remove spent flowers to encourage more flowering and to prevent self-seeding.  Remove the plants once they have died back in the autumn.
