The seed requires a period of cold stratification and the germination of stored seed can be erratic. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and plant them out in the summer.
Spring sow for flowers the same year. Autumn sow for flowers the following year. Autumn sow under glass. Fill a pot with 90% compost 10% sand. Sow 2mm deep and cover lightly with soil. Ideal temp. 22°C. If seed germinates straight away transplant otherwise seed will be dormant but ready to germinate the following spring. Spring sowing as above, if seeds have not germinated in 2-4 weeks cold stratify. Move to 4°C. for 6-8 weeks then return to warmth at 10°C. When seedlings have 2 true leavestransplant to 8cm pots. Grow on for a year before finally planting out with 50cm spacing.
