Sow seeds outdoors where they are to flower. Prepare the ground by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones. Sow 1.5mm deep, in rows 30cm apart, or scatter seeds in beds or borders as a gap filler and lightly cover the seed. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 20cm apart. Water plants frequently throughout the summer to promote an endless supply of delicate, azalea like flowers. For earlier flowering sow indoors, in 7.5cm pots of good seed sowing compost at 20-25C. When well grown, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after all risk of frost.
