Raising Platycodon from seed.

Having saved seed from a Platycodon grandiflorous growing in my garden I would like to know how best to germinate them.




According to my book, they should be sown in spring into a pot and put in a cold frame. It suggests sowing several seeds in each pot as the seedlings are fragile. They will take two years to reach flowering size
