Sow finely and thinly cover with compost, best sown from October onwards. The key factor in germination is the winterizing of the seeds. This can be simulated before sowing by wrapping the seeds in wet paper towels and sealing in a plastic food bag and leaving in the fridge for between 15 and 30 days. Alternatively sow in late autumn for late winter/early spring germination.
