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 10-15C (50-60F) and keep moist. When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings 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 25cm (10in) apart from late spring onwards. Water plants generously in dry weather.

Sowing Outdoors

Sow seeds thinly in a pre-watered shallow row. Lightly covering with a little soil.

Keep soil moist, as dry conditions impair germination. Allow 45cm (18in) between rows. Small sowings made every three weeks ensure a continuous supply.

Potting on/Thining Out

Thin seedlings to about 25cm (10in) apart when large enough to handle. Ensure remaining seedlings are still firm in the soil.
