When to sow
When to Sow Maximus Seeds
April to May. Germinates in around 7 days.
Where to Sow
Sow the seeds thinly in trays or two seeds per cell in modules under glass at 13°C. Later sowings can be made into a seed bed in shallow drills 2cm (3/4") deep in short rows. Sow in full sun / partial shade and keep sheltered from strong winds.
What to do Next
As soon as glasshouse seedlings show their first pair of leaves, prick off into trays 5cm (2") apart or thin modules to one seedling per cell. Gradually harden off before planting out when about 15cm (6in) tall. Plant in beds 60cm (24in) between plants and 90cm (36in) between the rows. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to 7-10cm (3-4in) apart, then once plants are large enough, lifted and transplanted to their final planting positions, spaced the same as detailed above.
September to November
Successive plantings can extend cropping period.
