Flowering

From Early Summer TO Early Autumn

The flowering season is from early Summer to early Autumn

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in early Spring in a sunny site where the soil is free-draining. (It doesn't matter if the soil is poor, as long as it is free-draining). Water the newly-planted plant well, and keep watering regularly until the plant is established.

 

Propagating by seed

From Late Summer TO Mid Autumn

This plant self-seeds readily. More of a problem is stopping it from self-seeding!

 

Propagating by cuttings

From Late Spring TO Early Summer

Take softwood cuttings from new growth early in the day in Spring or early Summer. Cut, neatly, a 4" approx. piece of a non-flowering shoot, pinch out the tip, and cut off the bottom leaves. Dip the bottom of the cutting in hormone rooting powder, and carefully place in a pot of cutting compost with the leaves just above the level of the compost. Water, label, cover with a polythene bag, and place in a warm, bright place, out of direct sunlight. Take the polythene bag off periodically for a while for ventilation (at least twice a week)
