Planting & Harvesting
Sow & Grow
Sow indoor: for surest results, 1.5cm(½in) deep, on edge, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C(60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 60cm(2ft) apart, when frosts are over.
Sow outdoors: for ease, where they are to crop, 1.5cm(½in) deep directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Allow 60cm(2ft) between sowing positions. Sow two seeds on edge per position. Early sowings benefit from cloche protection. Thin to leave the stronger plant. Water well until plants are established.
