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 10-15C (50-60F) 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) during summer.
Sow seed thinly in pre-watered shallow rows, and cover with a little soil. Keep soil moist at all times. As seedlings develop, thin them to about 2cm (1in) apart.
Row Spacing30cm /12in
Sowing Distance25cm / 10in
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.
Water plants generously in dry weather.
