Sow the seed onto the surface of a free draining, damp, seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of horticultural grit or perlite. Seal the entire container inside a clear plastic bag and place in a warm bright room but out of direct sunlight.

Once the second set of true leaves grow through they are ready for transplanting into 3 inch pots using a good quality soil-based multipurpose compost. Allow the seedlings to harden off for about 3 weeks outside under protected cover such as a cool greenhouse or cold frame. After this period they can then be placed outdoors into their final position although they may need some further protection over their first winter.
