Additional Seed Information
Sowing/Planting Instructions Sow early spring at 21 -24C (70-75F) in a good seed compost. Sow 2mm (1/16in) deep and keep the soil damp but not wet. Sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 10-14 days.
Growing Instructions When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into pots or boxes and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30-40cm (12-18in) apart in a sunny spot in good rich soil.
