    How to Grow

    Sow the seed on the surface of a moist seed sowing compost in a 286 plug tray or slightly larger unit and cover with vermiculite to a depth of approximately 3 to 4 mm. Propagate at 18 to 20C and germination should take place after 10 to 14 days. Maintain a temperature of 15C after germination.

    Continue to grow the seedlings on at 15C until they are established and fill the tray. Transfer to a 12 pack, 6 pack or 9cm pot and continue to grow on at 10 to 15C. Early February sowings will result in flowering plants for sale in late April / May. Later sowings made in April can be potted on into 1 litre pots for sales of more established flowering plants in late June.
