Sow

Sow in spring or autumn.  Sow in a tray of moist seed compost.  Press the seeds lightly into the compost, and do not cover as light is needed for germination.  Keep at 16-18°C and seedlings emerge in 2-3 weeks.  Pot on and grow until the plants are ready to plant out after the last frost. Protect autumn sowings over winter in a cold frame or greenhouse.  

Grow In spring, the flowers appear first, followed by the leaves.  You may wish to mark the location of plants so as not to damage emerging flowers.  Deadhead to prolong flowering.  Can be grown in pots.  Mature tubers can be divided in autumn.
