Sow seeds as soon as possible.
Soak the seeds 24 hours in warm water (you can put the water in a thermos to keep it warm) Sow 1.5mm (1/16in) deep in trays or pots containing good moist seed compost and seal the container inside a polythene bag or cover with a plastic dome to keep moisture in. Place in a propagator, on a heating mat or warm place to maintain an optimum temperature of 27-29°C (80-85°F). It is essential that the soil temperature is high and kept steady.
Germination can take from 1-9 months so be patient. Don't toss out your seed beds thinking they won't germinate!
