Indoor growing instructions In trays of seed compost. Sow thinly and cover with a fine layer of compost. Firm gently and cover with glass, polythene or propagator lid. Keep at approx. 15-20°C. Germination takes 14-21 days. Make 2 or 3 sowings for a longer flowering season. Remove cover when seedlings appear. Grow on at approx. 10°C. When large enough transplant 5cm apart in trays. Acclimatise plants to outdoor temperatures from late May before transplanting 15cm apart in final flowering position.
Tip Usually seedlings with light coloured leaves develop double flowers and those with dark coloured leaves develop single flowers.
