Where to Sow Soak seed overnight before sowing.
Sow indoors on the surface of moist compost filled pots or trays and cover the seeds with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a warm position (temperature of 20 to 30°C (68 to 86°F) is ideal). To maintain this temperature you may require a propogator or place the tray inside a sealed polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 18 to 21 days.
What to do Next When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays and grow on in cooler conditions.
When all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise indoor raised seedlings to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Then transplant into final growing position planting them 45cm (18in) apart. 
  Water well until plants are established.
  Deadhead to encourage further flowering. Flower stems may require staking if in exposed area.
