How to Guide
Sow seeds individually on 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.
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.

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 about 60cm (24in) between plants.
Water freely and frequently, especially during dry spells.
