Any time - apart from winter, of course! It germinates so quickly.

Great. I sowed some in February too and they've come on so well so quickley that I fancied sowing some more but thought I'd left it too late.

They'll seed themselves, Gaia01...mine do - in the strangest of places. lol.

Actually Spritzhenry I'm pretty sure you were the one to recommend this plant to me when I asked a question last year and for that I thank you as I've already had a lot of pleasure fom these plants and they haven't reached the flowering stage yet....I recommended them to my mum and she's enjoying them too. A great seed for kids to grow as the results are quick and the leaves attractive:0)

I'm glad you like them, Gaia...:-)) I think it's a plant that once you have it, it self-seeds, so you have it the following year/s as well! Can't be bad.
