Sow in spring on the surface of moist seed compost and keep at 18 to 20C.  Do not cover the seeds, as light is needed for germination, which takes 7 to 10 days.  Grow on at about 15C and transplant into pots when the seedlings are big enough to handle.  Plant out into the garden after the last frost.
