Sowing Indoors
Level fill a module seed tray with seed compost firming with the base of another tray. Water well with a fine rose. Sow seeds individually on edge, 1.5cm deep. Place in a propagator at 20°C or cover tray with cling film and leave in a warm room. Keep moist.

Growing On
When shoots appear, remove cling film. Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from direct sunlight. When large enough to handle, transplant into 8cm pots of potting compost. Grow on in a minimum temperature of 15°C.

Planting Out
Plant into the greenhouse border 60cm apart, grow bags or in 30cm diameter containers on a sunny, sheltered, frost-free patio when first flowers have opened. Water and feed well to promote fruiting. If male flowers form (those without a swelling behind them) do not remove them as they are necessary for pollination.

Water and feed regularly. Indoor crops require plenty of ventilation in summer and a climbing support for them to scramble up.
