Propagation

Seed - best sown in a cold frame as soon as it is ripe or else it can be slow to germinate[3]. Sow the seed in partial shade in rich soil in September or March[4]. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow the plants on for their first winter in a cold frame. Plant out in late spring or early summer. Division in early spring or in autumn. The divisions can be difficult to establish[5], so it is probably best to pot them up first and keep them in a cold frame or greenhouse until they are growing away actively.
