Propagation

Seed - sow spring in a cold frame. Germination usually takes place within 2 weeks. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer.
If you have sufficient seed then it would be worthwhile sowing it outdoors in situ in mid to late spring.
