For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Sow seed in containers in a cold frame, when ripe or in spring. Grow in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Moist, well-drained soil rich in organic matter will produce the best results. In regions where the winter lows are likely to dip below -10C, a heavy mulch should be applied.
