How to Guide

Sowing Indoors

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 at 15-20C (60-70F) and keep moist.

Sowing Distance

30cm / 12in

Potting on/Thining Out

Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from bright sun. When large enough to handle, transplant 5cm (2in) apart into trays of potting compost.

Hardening Off/Planting Out

Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out during autumn.

Young plants will then become established before the onset of winter. Allow 30cm (12in) between plants.
