Sow Sow anytime in a tray of moist seed compost.  Cover very lightly with compost or vermiculite, and do not exclude light, which is needed for germination.  Keep at 15-21C.  Germination takes 2-4 weeks.  If there is no germination, move the tray to a fridge for 2-4 weeks and back into the warmth.  Or sow in autumn/winter and keep in a coldframe.  Seeds start to germinate in the spring.  Pot on when seedlings are big enough to handle and plant into the garden when frost free.
Grow Plants grow quickly into mat which needs little maintenance.  Dead material and old flowerheads can be cutback in early spring. Mature plants are easily divided in spring or autumn.   Stem cuttings take easily in spring and summer break off pieces and plant directly into the ground or into pots.
