How to Guide
Almost fill a seed tray with moist seed compost. Sow seeds thinly over the surface, and lightly cover them with a little more compost.
Place in warmth 10-15°C (50-60°F) and keep moist. When large enough to handle, transplant 5cm (2in) apart into trays of potting compost.
Gradually accustom them to conditions outside for 2-3 weeks before planting out to their cropping positions 60cm (24in) apart during summer.
Sow seeds thinly in a shadow, pre-watered row. Lightly cover seeds with a little soil. Kepp soil moist until seedlings are established.
Sowing Distance45cm / 18in
When the seedlings have produced about four true leaves, transplant them to their cropping positions, allowing about 60cm (24in) each way between plants. Firm them in, and keep them well watered in dry spells.
