Sowing Advice-

Cover seeds thinly with river sand or seed raising mix. And place in a cool spot. No artificial heat is needed as this can cause rapid germination and fungal attack, or make seed go into much deeper dormancy. Seedlings usually appear within 3 to 6 weeks but can take much longer. Pot on into small pots and protect from hot sun. Plant out in a shaded, moist humus rich slightly acid soil. Many are herbaceous and dye down to a large resting bud.
