Sow 5mm (1/4in) deep spacing rows and seeds 20cm (8in) apart. Cover with a layer of soil and firm gently. Keep soil moist and warm. Seedlings appear in 10-14 days.

Pinching out the tip of the main stem will encourage bushy plants and prevents flowering. Ensure the soil is kept moist and weed free.
