For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.
Sow seed in autumn, or stratify in sand in the spring. To stratify: Use a clean container with clean damp sand, place seed on the surface and cover with a thin 1cm(½ inch) of additional damp sand. Refrigerate for six weeks. Seed may then be sown in containers in a cool greenhouse or coldframe. Grow on in moist, well drained, moderately fertile soil.
