From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Can be purchased from good nurseries in pots and planted straight into the growing site. Establish plants in the garden in spring in a sheltered, sunny place in free draining acid or neutral soil. Grow pot plants in a soil based compost such as John Innes number 3, adding peat or peat substitute to make up to a quarter of the volume.

 

Propagation

From Early Spring TO Mid Summer

Sow seeds under glass during spring or take semi-ripe cuttings in summer.
