suitable for containers
fill a seed tray with yates black magic(r) seed raising mix. Press mix firmly into tray; water and allow to drain. Sow seed and cover lightly with seed raising mix. Place tray in a warm, shady, sheltered place and mist with water, as required, to keep moist (not wet).
once seedlings are 3-5cm high, transplant into small individual pots. Grow on until a root ball establishes and transplant into the garden or containers.
cold treatment and growing in a greenhouse will enhance germination. Apply yates blitzem(r) to protect young seedlings from slugs and snails.
