Sowing Months Flowering Months Harvest Months

As the flowers form, make sure the compost is always evenly moist. Give a weak application of fertiliser as the blossoms open and water in well. To ensure continued cropping, pick the fruit as soon as they start to colour and ripen off the plant.

Sow seeds early spring in good compost and barely cover the seeds. Germination usually takes 8-14 days at 24-27C (75-80F).

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) and finally 20cm (8in) pots or grow-bags if to be grown under glass. Gradually acclimatise outdoor plants to end of springtime weather, and plant out in early summer 60x90cm (24-36in) apart in moist, well drained soil in a sunny sheltered spot after all risk of frost. Under glass aim for a daytime temperature around 24C (75F) and 16-24C (60-75F) at night, otherwise fruit setting may be poor.

Grown these for a few years and they never fail. Plant seeds in propagator and transplant to an 8" pot filled with general compost in the greenhouse after frosts. Plant a couple of pots with tagetes close by to keep greenfly away.
