Growing On

  • Remove cling film as soon as shoots appear
  • Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from direct sunlight
  • When large enough to handle, transplant into 9cm (3 1/2 in) pots of potting compost
  • Grow on in a minimum temperature of 15°C (60°F)

 

Planting Out

  • Plant into the greenhouse border 30cm (12in) apart, grow bags or 30cm (12i) diameter containers of sunny, sheltered, frost free patio when first flowers have opened
  • Water and feed well to promote fruiting.
  • If male flowers form (those without a swelling behind them), remove them as soon as they are noticed

Growing Tips

  • Water and feed regularly
  • Indoor crops require plenty of ventilation in summer and a climbing support for them to scramble up
