When to sow
When to Sow Blue Kuri Seeds
April to May under glass, mid May to June outdoors.
Where to Sow
Sow seed on edge 1.5cm (1/2") deep to prevent rotting in pots during April to May under glass at 20C (68F) using good quality seed sowing compost. Sow outdoors mid-May to June direct into growing site 1.5cm (1/2") deep 2 to 3 seeds in each position 60cm (24") apart.
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 in late-May to early-June 60-90cm (24-36") apart once all risk of frost has past. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one plant per station.
September to October.
Prefers a deep humus rich soil for both the goodness and its water retention qualities.
