Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination which takes 7-21 days. Do not exclude light. Spring sowings can be sown outdoors, 2.5cm (1in) deep, in drills 7.5cm (3in) apart.
Growing – Overwinter October sown plants in cooler conditions such as a coldframe before planting out in spring, when the ground has warmed, 23-3cm (9-12in) apart. Pinch out growing point once the second pair of leaves has opened.
