Propagation

Seed - sow spring in a greenhouse[6]. Seed can be very slow to germinate, sometimes taking 2 years or more[7]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Cuttings of almost ripe shoots, August/September in a sandy soil in a frame. The leaves should be left on the stem.[8][6].
