SOWING ADVICE: EASY

Sow at any time of year in punnets indoors / or scatter in garden in winter for spring germination.

Sow in punnets on surface of good quality seed raising mix. Press gently. Do not cover. Light is needed for germination. Keep moist. 20-25C approx. is best for germination, then most seedlings should emerge in approx. 14-28 days. But do not discard – desert plants naturally stagger germination. Wrap punnet in cling-wrap and place in fridge for 4 weeks. Unwrap and return to heat.
