Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of the year. Mix equal parts of peat based seed compost with vermiculite, perlite or horticultural grit and sow seeds on the surface, then just cover them with a layer of the mix. Seal inside a polythene bag and place in the fridge for 6 weeks. After this, move to a propagator or other warm place and maintain an optimum temperature of 18-21C. Germination should take place within 1-2 months. 

An alternative method is to sow in pots as above during late summer to early winter then place in a cold frame and let nature take its course as the seasons change with the seedlings emerging the next spring.
