How To Sow

Sprinkle the seeds onto the surface of each pot or seed tray filled with a moist, well draining seed raising mix – add up to 20% propagating sand if needed for drainage.

Sprinkle a small amount of soil over the top and moisten lightly with a spray bottle to avoid disturbing the seeds.

Place into a warm, filtered sun position.


Once sprouted, move tray to sunny position, that is protected from strong summer sun in the afternoon. Keep soil moist but not wet!

Transplant the stronger seedlings into their own pots once necessary and they have 2-3 leaves.
