Place the planted pot in a dark cold location, this can be under a crate or box outside in a corner of the garden, or you dig out a bed in which the pots fit (edge of pots level with top Soil ) & place a thick layer of peat over it and fill up with the top soil taken out.

Once the sprouts are appox. 6-8 cm (2-3") tall or when the flower buds are visual, the planters can be taken indoors, clean them with some luke warm water and place the planters in a moderate warm room (16-18 centigrade - 60 F.) such as a bedroom but in bright daylight. Spray the pots daily with a water mister. Once the flowerbuds are visual and the foliage starts to spread, take them into the living room and force them into flower.
