WHEN TO SOW 

January to February under glass or March to April outdoors 

WHERE TO SOW 

Early sowings can be made under glass at 14C. Sow the seed into pots or trays and cover the seed with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. For outdoor sowings, sow the seed thinly, 1.5cm (1/2in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Water ground reguarly, especially during dry periods. 

WHAT TO DO NEXT 

Once early sowings have germinated transplant into individual pots and grow on under glass until April before moving to a cold frame to harden off before planting out at 25-30cm (10-12in) apart in the row and 45cm (18in) between rows. Outdoor dowings once large enough to handle, carefully lift plants and transplant to the same spacing's as above using a towel or dibber, and water in. 

HARVEST 

October to February. 

HANDY TIP

Keep watered during dry weather. Earth up the stems during the growing season to increase the length of blanched stem.
