Sow at any time of year in punnets indoors / or scatter in garden in winter, spring & autumn.

INDOORS: First sow the seed in a punnet on surface of good quality seed raising mix.
Then gently pat the seed to the surface of the mix to ensure good contact.
Now barely cover with fine mix/fine sand.
Because these seeds need light for germination.

Now thoroughly moisten by standing the punnet in a shallow water bath and allowing the moisture to percolate through to the surface of the mix from below.

Then place the punnet in a warm, well lit position.
Continue to keep moist.

Temperatures of 15-20°C approx. are best for rapid and optimum germination.

Seedlings emerge in approx. 14-30 days.

However if the seeds are shy to germinate – then they need a period of chilling to break their natural dormancy.
So cling wrap the moist punnet. Place in fridge (not freezer) for 4-6 weeks. Then remove, unwrap & return to well-lit position at 15-20°C.  Continue to keep moist for germination.

SEED COUNT: 25 seeds per pack approx.
(We always aim to exceed the stated count and give a generous serve).
