How to Guide
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 18-25C (65-75F), and keep moist. Dry conditions will prevent the seeds germinating.
Sowing Distance20cm / 8in
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 30cm (12in) between plants if planting in the garden.
Container plantings can be much closer together. Water well in dry weather and feed plants regularly with a liquid fertiliser.
