Sow indoors

Almost fill 12cm (5in) pots with seed and cutting compost. Sow five seeds, evenly spaced, per pot and lightly cover with a little more compost. Water well after sowing, but not again until seedlings have emerged. Place in warmth 10-15°C (50-60°F).

Grow on/plant out

Grow on in unheated conditions, ideally in a cold frame. Pinch out the growing tips to encourage bushier plant growth and more flowers. Plant out 20cm (8in) apart from March onwards in a sunny position.

Sow outdoors

Sow seeds in pre-watered, warm soil 2cm (1in) deep, 10cm (4in) apart. Keep soil moist until seedlings emerge.

Aftercare

Support young plants with canes, netting or trellis to about 1.8m (6ft). Feed and water regularly. Pick flowers often to ensure a continuous supply.

Tips

Feed and water plants regularly, pick flowers often to ensure continuous supply. Autumn sowings produce stronger, earlier flowering plants. Overwinter seedlings in a cold frame or under cloches.
