Date of harvest : November 2010. Sowing : Sow seeds in spring, directly in seedling mix by evenly sprinkling the papery seeds over the surface. Cover seeds with a light sprinkling of sand (just enough to cover seeds). Water with a fine rose spray to prevent seeds and soil becoming displaced and place in a warm sunny position.
