Seed - best sown in a cold frame as soon as it is ripe. The seed can also be sown in spring. Surface sow 2 - 3 seeds per pot in the spring in order to avoid transplanting. We have found that if transplanted when very small seedlings grow away without difficulty[K]. Germinates in 1 - 3 months at 10°c. Plant out into their permanent positions whilst young. Basal cuttings in spring[238, K]. Division in spring - very difficult because the plant dislikes root disturbance.

Prefers a light rich slightly alkaline soil that is not too dry, and a warm sunny position.

The young growth is extremely attractive to slugs, they have been known to destroy even mature plants[K].
