Surface sow February/April inside or in a heated greenhouse. Use a tray and fine seed compost, put the tray in a polyethylene bag and try to keep it at a temperature around 15-18 Celsius; germination takes 2-3 weeks. Keep the soil moist. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse. Plant them out into their permanent positions in the summer, when large and strong enough to handle the wind.
