Sowing Advice

Sow seeds in good quality compost or seed raising mix at any time. Lightly cover with fine river sand or compost to their own depth. Place in a propagator or cover with a plastic lid in a warm place. We recommend germinating at 15-20 degrees C.  keep moist at all times, but do not saturate. Germination in 10 to 30 days. Pot on seedlings to harden off and mature before finally planting out in the garden.
