An old-fashioned biennial. Plants form a low rosette of green leaves in the first year. In the following summer, upright stems will bear loads of large dangling rose pink bells. Stems are superb for cutting. Allow some plants to self-seed, which will produce another generation for future years.
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 should occur in 14-28 days. Seeds trays may be placed in a unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination in Spring. Pot on seedlings to harden off and mature before finally planting out in the garden.
