Sow Sow in spring. Sow in a tray or pots of moist seed compost and cover lightly with compost or vermiculite.  Keep at 20-25C and seedlings emerge in 1-3 weeks.  Pot on seedlings when they are big enough to handle.  Pinch out the growing tips of young plants to encourage a bushy habit.  Plant out after the last frost into the garden or containers. 
Grow Deadhead plants to prolong flowering.  Water plants during dry spells.  Feed container grown plants once a week.  Protect plants against slugs and snails.  Spidermites can attack plants under glass. Plants die down after flowering in the autumn when they should be removed.  Sow seeds again in spring.
