Sow indoors for surest results, February-May, 1.5 cm (1/2-inch) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant individually, when large enough to handle, to 7.5 cm (3-inch) 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-October, 40 cm (16-inch) apart. Or, sow outdoors, May-July, in a seed bed, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Keep moist and weed free. Thin seedlings to 5 cm (2-inch) apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn. Flowers: June-August, the following year.
Hints and Tips: Mature plants may be divided in spring or autumn, while they are dormant, to increase your stock of this beautiful perennial.
