When to Sow Bush Baby Seeds

April to May under glass. Mid May to June outdoors

Plant

Out May to June

Harvest

September to October

Where to Sow

Sow seed on edge 1.5cm (1/2") deep to prevent rotting in pots or trays during April to May 2.5cm (1") apart under glass at 20°C (68°F) using good quality seed sowing compost.

Sow outdoors mid-May to June direct into growing site 1.5cm (1/2") deep 2 to 3 seeds in each position 60cm (24") apart.                                                                             

What to do next

Greenhouse sowings should be gradually hardened off once they have developed the first pair of rough leaves and transplanted to growing site in late-May to early-June 60cm (24") apart once all risk of frost has past.  Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one plant per station.

Handy Tip

Prefers to be planted in a deep humus rich soil for both the goodness and its water retention qualities.
