Plant Propagation

Seed - sow spring in situ[200]. Germination should take place within 3 weeks. The flowering season can be extended by making a succession of sowings from spring to early summer[200]. An autumn sowing should overwinter in many parts of the country and would provide flowering plants in the spring.
