Planting & Harvesting
Sow & Grow
Outdoors: sow thinly, August-April where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, moisture-retentive soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1') between rows. Sowings will benefit from cloche or fleece protectionand the young plants will suffer less damage. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Thin out to 15cm (6") apart. Water well until plants are established. Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply. Harvest: March-July.
Hint's & Tips
During very cold spells, it is better to sow indoors and to transplant seedlings outside, protecting them with fleece.
