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 in autumn. Grow in sharply drained soil, preferably on a slope, in full sun. Avoid any root disturbance while transplanting young seedlings. Plant in their final growing position where their roots will not be disturbed.
