Germination should start to take place after approximately 7days at this stage the temperature can be lowered to 15c.|
|Growing Instructions||Sowings made in November-December should kept at 15c until they are established which should take about 2 to 3 weeks then reduce the temperature to 10 to help avoid stretching of the seedlings. The plugs should be ready to pot at the end of early March and can be potted either into a 1 litre pot or 3 plugs in a 3 litre pot for sales at the end of April-early May and should flower in July. Sowings made in May to July will need to be grown on as cool as possible and potted in the same way as above and over wintered in a well ventilated unheated glasshouse, tunnel or cold frame for sale from March onwards and should flower from June onwards.|
