How to Sow
Sow in early spring a good seed compost just covering the seed with compost. Make sure that the compost is moist but not wet and seal in a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 5-10 days at 12-24C (70-75F). Transplant when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots, and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart in a sunny spot in ordinary garden soil.
The citrus tasting flowers have many uses, try them in salads, sandwiches or seafood dishes too.
