When to sow
WHEN TO SOW
April to July
WHERE TO SOW
Early sowings can be made under glass at a temperature of 20-25C (68-77F). Sow the seed at a depth of 13mm (½") in trays or modules of free-draining seed sowing compost and then lightly cover the seed with a layer of vermiculite or sieved compost. Later sowings can be sown direct outdoors into a well prepared seedbed. Sow at a depth of 13mm (½") and distance of 30cm (12") between rows.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Seedlings under glass can be pricked out into trays and grown on in cooler conditions until all risk of frost has passed , then once they have 2-3 true leaves can be transplanted to the growing site spaced 30-35cm (12-14in) between the plants and 30-35cm (12-14in) between the rows . Those sown direct outdoors can be thinned out once large enough to handle to the same spacings as detailed above. Don't waste the thinnings as these can be eaten as salad leaves.
July to October
Keep soil constantly moist to prevent seedlings bolting and to deter flea beetle which can pepper holes in the leaves. Apply lime to acid soils to reduce the acidity and lessen the risk of clubroot.
