Sowing Months Flowering Months Harvest Months
  • Sow seed, 2cm (3/4in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of good seed compost. Place in a propagator or seal containers inside a polythene bag and keep at 21-25°C (70-77F) until after germination, which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude daylight as this helps germination.
  • Can also be sown outdoors once the soil has warmed. Do not sow into cold soil. Sow 2 seeds every 90cm (36in) apart and thin out to the best seedling. Ideally grow under cloches until the plant is established.
  • Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all risk of frost has passed. 90cm (36in) apart each way. Keep well watered throughout the season, feed and mulch regularly.
