OUR TIPS
Sow a few seeds on the surface of the soil. Cover lightly with fine compost. When large enough to handle, place 3 sprouts in a larger 8cm pot.
Keep the plants compact by trimming growth after flowers fade and remember to give pot plants a boost with some liquid fertiliser. Keep them in a sheltered spot during winter as the plants do not enjoy being wet.
