How to Guide

Sowing Indoors

Sow seeds individually on their edge in small pots of moist seed compost 2cm (1in) deep. Place in warmth 15-18C (60-65F). As seedlings develop, grow on under cool, light conditions, but not in bright sun.

Sowing Outdoors

Water sowing positions, then sow two or three seeds close together in a group 2cm (1in) deep. Allow 90cm (36in) between groups. After germination, leave only the strongest seedling in each group.

Row Spacing

90cm / 36in

Sowing Distance

90cm / 36in

Hardening Off/Planting Out

Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out to their cropping positions when danger of frost has passed. Allow 90cm (36in) between plants.

Aftercare

Water freely and frequently, especially during dry spells.
