Sow thinly in trays of seed compost. Just cover the seeds with compost, keep moist and maintain a temperature of 15-20C (60-68F). Germination should take 10-14 days, but may be erratic. Thin (prick out) when seedlings have developed 2-4 leaves. Harden off and plant out when seedlings are 5-10cm tall, allowing 9-12in (25-30cm) between plants. Remove dead heads to prolong flowering season.
