Planting & Harvesting
Sow & Grow
Sow indoors: January-April, 1.5cm(1/2") deep in pots or trays of seed compost. Keep moist and warm at approx. 20-25C(68-75F). Cover with glass, polythene or propagator lid. Remove cover when seedlings appear, then transplant to 7.5cm(3") pots when large enough to handle. Gradually harden off and plant out late May-June, avoid frosts, ideally in large pots or containers and place in a sunny, sheltered spot. Keep moist and weed-free. For greenhouse crops, transplant to growing bags or large pots in the greenhouse in May-June.
Harvest: August-October, outdoor crops will be smaller and later.
