Sowing/Growing information
Sowing Sow on to a well wetted seed sowing compost in a 144 cell plug tray. Cover the seed with 5mm vermiculite and propagate at 15 to 20C. For best results sow three to four seeds per cell to produce a bushier looking plant. Germination should start to take place after 7 to 10 Days. Cool down to 15 C or slightly lower soon after germination to avoid any stretching of the seedlings. Another method is to sow up to 6 seeds direct into a 9cm pot and cut out the plug transfer stage altogether.
Growing When the seedlings are established cool them down slightly to 10C and transfer on to a 6 Pack or 9cm pot for final sale. January sowings should result in saleable plants in late April.
