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 or containers in late-May to early-June 60cm (24") apart. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one plant per station. As plants grow , tie into supports to help plants climb and support the weight of fruit.
Regular picking produces a crop over many months. Pick fruits when young to maintain a long cropping period.
