Show Codes

1 Packet (1000 seeds) (KC9731)


Indoors – fill a seed tray or pots with good, free-draining seed compost. Sow on the surface of the compost and cover with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.

Outdoors – once the ground has warmed, prepare the soil by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones. Sow 6mm (1?4") deep, in rows 20cm (8") apart.

How to Grow

Transplant seedlings in bunches into trays or 7.5cm (3") pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost has passed, 30cm (12") apart. Thin out seedlings sown outdoors to 30cm (12") apart.
