Propagation

Seed - best sown in a cold frame as soon as it is ripe since the seed only has a short viability[7]. Seed can also be sown in the spring, though germination rates will be lower. It requires light for germination[7]. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in a cold frame for their first winter, planting them out into their permanent positions in the spring. The seed can also be sow in situ as soon as it is ripe.
