cotty.. i have struggled for some years to grow them.. but last year i harvested a load of white seeds and a colour i do not know as pinched seed head form osbourne house gardens and they have all grown.. have over 35 young healthy plants.
so each time i have tried differenct ways to get them to seed..
this time i sowed them in a tray soon after harvesting.. let them dry out for bit then seeded. kept htem in my greenhouse and kept moist.. and checked on them regularlay.. they stayed in my greenhouse in a shady bit under the shelving all winter long every couple weeks i would rough up the surface a bit and poke any seeds i could see back in.. they ahve stayed in my greenhouse the whole time even when it has been hot in there.. they have loved it.... in march time they started to shooting and i just pricked them out into a celluar tray when they got second leaves..
i dont know if this ws just luck this time or i have finally masterd it.. i do not know.. but that is what i will doing again this year.. as well as splittig them.. that i have been told is good too.
