Plant Out April to June
Harvest July to October
Where to Sow
Sow seeds under glass 0.5cm (1/4 in) deep in pots or trays of good seed sow-ing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a temperature of 18–21C .
What to do next
Prick out seedlings, once large enough to handle, into 9cm (3 1/2in) pots. Transplant to the greenhouse border soil, or individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high. Can also be planted outdoors once all risk of frost has past. Plants have a bushy habit and do not require side shooting. Stake and support plants for the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.
Water regularly to help avoid splitting fruits and blossom end rot.
