Sowfrom January onwards. Sowing in individual cell modules works best, cover lightly with compost and place on a sunny windowsill or heated greenhouse. Germination takes 14 to 21days. Pot on when large enough to handle.
Best grown in a greenhouse or polytunnel, but can also be grown in open ground in a warm, sunny position. Pinch out the growing tip when plants reach 30cm to encourage them to bush out.
