Sow Sow in spring. Sow from February to May, in trays of moist seed compost.  Cover lightly with compost and do not exclude light.  Keep at 18-25°C and germination takes 1-3 weeks.  Transplant seedlings into pots when they are big enough to handle. Plant out into the garden after the last frost and keep well watered until the plants are established.  Seeds can be sown directly into the garden in May.
Grow Deadhead to encourage flowers.  Remove plants in the autumn when they have finished flowering.  In warmer Mediterranean gardens, these plants may survive the winter and flower again in following years.  Plants may need staking in more exposed gardens.
