  • Place seed on the surface of seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite.
  • Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 20-25°C (68-77F) until after germination, usually 7-21 days. Do not exclude daylight as this helps germination.
  • Transplant seedlings in bunches into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots, grow on in cooler conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart.
  • Can also be sown outdoors, once the soil has warmed, 1.5mm (1/2in) deep, in rows 20cm (8in) apart. Later thin out to 30cm (12in) apart.
