GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
For use as indoor pot plants, sow indoors at any time of year. Pot seedlings on individually, to 15cm (6") pots and keep in a light, airy location.
For outdoor plants in summer, sow indoors from February to April 5mm deep in trays of compost.
Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20C (60-68F) is ideal. Keep moist.
Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days.
Transplant seedlings, 5cm (2") apart, to other trays when large enough to handle (always hold by a leaf, never by the stem).
Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, May-June, 20cm (8") apart, when frosts are over.
