SOW INDOORS – APRIL

SOW OUTDOORS – MAY

FLOWERS – JUNE to SEPTEMBER

For a head start, sow indoors initially. Fill a seed tray with seed sowing compost nearly to the top. Sprinkle the seeds over the surface and cover with a thin sprinkling of seed compost. Place in a light, warm space in 20-25°C (68-77°F). Make sure there is plenty of light and drainage for the pots. Germination takes 5-14 days.

When seedlings are large enough to handle (between 2-4cm usually), they’re ready to be transferred into larger pots (7.5cm) to grow. When danger of frost has passed, gradually harden off when planting outdoors to a sunny, or semi-shaded position.

Or sow directly outdoors where they are to flower after the last frost in April or May. Sow at a depth of 1/4 inch deep into well prepared, raked soil. Once the seedlings emerge, thin out seedlings as necessary.
