Growing Rosella, also Queensland Jam Plant, Roselle

Is now the right time to germinate rosella seeds? I thought to start some seeds in punnets and to plant the seedlings into a sunny spot later. I grew 3 from bought seedlings early this year and havested enough to make 1 bottle of jam. They were skinny little bushes, not like the pictures of bushes I've seen on the internet! How do you get them to have heaps of branches? Tip off the main stem? Any advice wouldbe much appreciated!
