Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – surface sow or only lightly cover the seed in spring in a greenhouse[164]. The seed usually germinates in 5 – 14 days at 25¡c[164]. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in late spring. Day time temperatures below 20¡c depress germination but a night time fall to 20¡ is necessary[164].
We have very little information on this species but it should succeed as a spring-sown annual in Britain. The following notes are based on the general needs of the genus. Prefers a light fertile soil in a warm dry sunny position with plenty of room to spread[1, 200].
Europe to W. Asia.
