  • Sow outdoors in a well prepared seed bed in August and September. Freeze rather than dry to store. For potted plants, sow in trays of compost. Just cover the seed and keep moist. Germination may be a little erratic. Thin as necessary and transplant to their final positions in September, spacing 12in. (30cm) apart. The roots are invasive and October be contained by growing in an old bottomless bucket or between buried bricks or slate or in tubs.
