Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow indoors, for surest results, 1.5cm (½”) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse or on a warm kitchen windowsill.  Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-35 days, but germination may be erratic. Further germination may be prompted by covering seed tray with glass or clear plastic and leaving outside to chill for 2-3 weeks before bringing back into a gentle warmth. Transplant seedlings individually as they appear to 8cm (3”) pots.  (Always handle by a leaf, never by the stem.) Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 30cm (1’) apart Native grown seed not taken from the wild.
