Spring, Summer & Autumn Place pots in a warm sunny position and keep moist to avoid drying out. Soak your seeds in water overnight. Sow seed on the surface and cover lightly to the depth of your seed. Do not bury deeply. Water with fine mist spray to avoid disturbance of the seed. Ensure the mix is moist but not water logged. Do not be too hasty to discard seeds that have not yet germinated, seeds will often lay dormant (in hibernation almost) until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination and sprouting to occur. Containers placed to one side & forgotten about will often surprise long after they were discarded.
