WHEN TO SOW

February to April

Where to Sow

Early sowings can be made in trays or modules under glass at 16-18°C. Later sowings in pots or trays in a cold frame or unheated glasshouse. Sow the seed on the surface of moist seed sowing compost and lightly cover to its own depth.

What to do next

Early sowings should be pricked off into trays 5cm (2") apart or modules thinned to one seedling as soon as large enough to handle. Harden off before planting in growing site 30cm (12") apart and 30-35cm (12-14in) between the rows. Do not plant until all danger of frost has passed. Cut off any side shoots leaving one centre stem of growth.
