Slow growing plant and delicate germination. It is better to germinate seedlings in a nursery (= place in the garden sheltered from the wind, for example by a wall, and well exposed). Sow your seeds on the fly, cover with 1/2 cm, cover and tamp lightly with the back of the rake, water in a fine rain. Keep seedlings moist until leaves appear, which can take up to 3 weeks. Reprick the most vigorous ones as soon as they are the diameter of a pencil in the ground every 15 cm, on well worked soil and enriched with mature compost.
