A mixture of 70% garden soil and 30% peat, or a soil based potting compost is advised for seed sowing; compost must be moist before sowing. We do not recommend soaking or chipping our seed. Sow 2 seeds per 3” pot October is the best time to sow. Once the seedlings are through, they should be put in a cold-frame to over-winter. Leave frame open day and night and only cover in frosts. Use mouse-traps and slug pellets to prevent pest damage. Don’t allow pots to dry out.
Prepare ground in the Autumn. Don’t over manure; a good handful of general purpose fertiliser per square yard is adequate. Plant out from early March. Tap out pot, drop 2 plants 12” apart Grow in double rows 18” apart, up a cane cordon fashion. Garden decoration plants can be supported with net wire in any frame. In dry weather, give a good soak once a week. Feed with high potash fertiliser once a week onto soil when buds appear.
