For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Sow seeds in a greenhouse from late winter to mid-summer. Barely cover the seed and keep moist at 20 degrees Celsius. Germination takes 1 - 6 months. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant out in late spring in light sandy soil in full sun.
