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

Sowing Distance

45cm / 18in

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 when danger of frost has passed. Allow 45cm (18in) between plants.
