GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Easily grown from seed.
Spread the seed evenly and rake into loose topsoil in fall or early spring. Supplemental watering is suggested if spring rains are poor.
Germination usually takes place within 10-40 days at +20C.
Provide additional water in May if necessary until the plants reach 25 cm tall.
The seed can also be sown in site in late summer in areas where the winters are not too severe and will produce larger plants.
Harvest the shoots with plenty of underground stem when they are about 8 - 10cm above the ground. Pot them up into individual pots and keep them in light shade in a cold frame or greenhouse until they are rooting well. Plant them out in the summer.
