Propagation

Seed - best harvested as soon as it is ripe but before it has fully dried on the plant and sown immediately in a cold frame. Stored seed requires stratification and should be sown as soon as possible[5]. 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. Seed can be stored cold and dry[5].
