SEED SOWING ADVICE:

Sow in punnets indoors / or scatter in garden autumn or winter.

Indoors: First rub the seeds between your hands with some sharp sand to score the seed case. Then soak seeds in warm (not boiling) water. Leave 24 hours. Sow in punnets on surface of good quality seed raising mix. Cover with grit/mix/sand/vermiculite to depth of seed diameter. Keep punnet moist at 16 to 21°C for 2-4 weeks. Then wrap punnet in cling wrap & place in fridge (not freezer) for 4-6 weeks. Remove from fridge, unwrap punnet & place again in 12-21°C. Seedlings emerge within approx. 30 days. But patience – do not discard punnet, as some seedlings may come later.
