Germination Instructions

Sow directly in autumn. Sow indoors Feb-July. Seeds need a period of cold-warm-cold to germinate. Easiest to sow directly and allow natural winter cold to offer ideal conditions for germination the following spring as weather warms. Indoors, sow 6mm deep into moist, well-drained seed compost, add a layer of vermiculite. Propagate. Ideal temp. 20-25°C for 3 weeks then cold stratify. Move to 5°C for 3 weeks then return to warmth, 20°C for germination. Germination takes 30 days approx. but if sown directly in spring can take up to 1 year. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle to 8cm pots  or acclimatise and sow out.
