Seeds can be sown in autumn or spring in the ground or in greenhouse boxes. At a temperature of + 18 + 22 ° C shoots appear in 20-25 days.

Seeds require preliminary stratification: sow seeds to a depth of no more than 0.5 cm, moisten from a spray bottle, cover with glass and place in a refrigerator (temperature + 5 + 7 ° C). Crops are kept under such conditions for 7-10 days, then transferred to room conditions. It is necessary to monitor the humidity of crops and ventilation. At a temperature of + 18 + 20 ° C, shoots appear on the 10-14th day.
Seedlings dive in the phase of 2-3 pairs of true leaves. If there is no germination, repeat the "cold-heat" method in the same sequence.
Seedlings dive into boxes after the appearance of the first true leaves. Seedlings are planted in open ground after 4-6 weeks.
Care: prefers sunny places or light partial shade with loose, non-acidic soil. Responsive to the introduction of lime. In one place it can grow 3-5 years.
