Sow thinly, indoors, February-April, 1.5cm (½”) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or on a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant individually, when large enough to handle, to 7.5cm (3″) pots. Always hold seedlings by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, May-July, spacing 40cm (16″) apart. Flowers: June-September
Mature plants may be divided in spring or autumn, while they are dormant, to increase your stock of this beautiful perennial. Tolerates dry conditions.
