Germination: 7-21 days
Comes in variety of shades include red, orange, yellow, white and purple.
Sow 6mm deep in a good seed compost. Keep soil damp but not wet, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Planting 30cm (12in) apart in a sunny spot on any good moisture retentive soil.
