Clusters of strong-smelling yellow flowers are shown on a sturdy erect stem amid elaborately-edged deeply veined leaves not dissimilar to the common nettle. More commonly found on the European mainland, this unusual looking plant likes to stand in shade and once established is likely to pop up places you might not expect to find it. To add to its bizarre and interesting features, this is also one of the few plants to be pollinated by wasps.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
