Sow the seeds from late winter until late spring in good seed compost. Just sprinkle the seeds on the surface of the compost and gently firm down the compost. Keep the soil moist and seal the seed tray into a polythene bag to aid germination, wich takes 10-20 days at 15-18 Celsius.
Transplant the seedlings into small pots when large enough to handle, and acclimatise them to outdoor conditions before planting outside to a sunny spot in the garden, after all risk of frost has passed.
