Sowing Advise-
Sow seed from autumn to spring when it will benefit from the cold to help break the dormancy. We suggest you sow seed in moist, good quality seed raising mix and lightly cover with the lightest of dressing of  the mix. Seal the container in a polythene bag and place in the fridge  for 3-5 weeks at 4 degrees C. Then remove from the fridge and the polythene bag and place in an un-heated poly house to wait for germination.  Seeds often wait till spring to emerge. Move seeds to a warm place at first sign of primary leaves emerging.  Prick out seedlings into 75mm pots and grow on until large enough to plant out.
