How to Guide
Sow seeds thinly in a pre-watered shallow row, and lightly cover seeds with a little soil. Keep soil moist, as dry conditions impair germination.
Remember small sowings made every three weeks through the summer should ensure a continuous supply.
Potting on/Thining Out
Thin seedlings to about 10cm (4in) apart when large enough to handle. Ensure remaining seedlings are still firm in the soil.
Water plants generously in dry weather.
