Sow outdoors from April to May (or after the last frost), where they are to flower.
Sow 3-5 mm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered.
Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days.
Thin them to 30cm apart. Water well until plants are established.
Also can be sown indoors, March-April, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or greenhouse. Keep moist.
Transplant seedlings, 5cm apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, May-June, 30cm apart, when frosts are over.
