Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks prior to the last frost date. Sow seeds 0.5in deep in cell pack containers, 1-2 seeds per cell, eventually leaving one plant per cell. Keep warm - germination takes 7-14 days at soil temperatures of 20-30C (75-80F). Grow plants warm and don't allow exposure to night temperatures that fall below 12C (55F) or this may stunt the plants.

Transplant as needed to 7.5cm (3in) pots and eventually to 12cm (5in) pots. Set out hardened transplants after all danger of frost and when the ground has thoroughly warmed in the spring. Set plants 38cm (15in) apart in rows 2 feet apart.

Feed regularly through the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Harvest when mature and in full colour for best flavour.
