To grow the plant outside, start by sowing the seeds indoors for 6 weeks . Sow sparsely in damp seed compost and keep at room temperature. Transplant 1 plant per pot of fertilised soil when the frost has disappeared and the soil has warmed up to at least 10°C. Make sure to water and fertilize regularly to keep the soil moist and rich in nutrients.
