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 10-15°C(50-60°F), and keep moist.

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, or individually into small pots.

Hardening Off/Planting Out

Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out from early summer onwards. Allow 45cm (18in) between plants.
