When to sow
WHERE TO SOW
Indoors - Sow individual seeds edgewise 1cm deep in 9cm pots under glass at a constant temperature of 25°C. As soon as the seedlings have produced three true leaves, transplant to 15cm pots. When the plants are 10cm tall, plant out to the growing site.
Outdoors - Sow from mid May 30cm apart in rows 100-150cm apart. Water regularly. When watering, always use tap water at room temperature to avoid any bacterial infection.
One of the traditional ways to ensure germination is to fold a damp sheet of kitchen paper in half, and place the seeds on their edge in the fold. Then place in a plastic bag and put them in the airing cupboard. Check daily and once germinated, place in compost and grow on as normal.
