Sow Trifolium seed indoors during Spring Sep-Nov. Sow onto the surface of good quality well draining seed raising mix and just cover lightly with vermiculite  or seed raising mix. Place in a propagator or seal in a polythene bag to maintain humidity. Ideal temperature is 20°C either naturally or on a heat bed. Keep moist but not wet at all times. Germination takes  approximately 2-4 weeks. Transplant into 8cm pots and grow on. Plant out in garden after danger of frost has past.
