How to Guide

Sow Indoors

January-April: Sow individually in clean 9cm pots of firm pre-watered compost. Cover with 1cm (1/2in) of vermiculite or sieved compost. Place in warmth, 21-24°C (70-75°F) and keep moist at all times.  Grow on at 16-18°C (60-65°) until late May-June. 

 

Plant Out

When established, plant into a patio pot or in a Grow Bag and leave in a cold greenhouse or place in a sunny sheltered position once all risk of frost has passed.

 

Tips

Feed regularly and water more frequently as a crop forms. Tie stems to a support if necessary.
