Sowing Indoors

  • Sow seeds individually on their edges in small pots of moist seed compost 2cm (1in) deep
  • Place in the warmth 15-18°C (60-65°F) and cover the pots with cling film until seedlings emerge
  • Grow on under cool, light conditions


Planting Out

  • Gradually accustom young plants to conditions outside for 2-3 weeks before planting out to their cropping positions when danger of frost has passed
  • Allow about 1cm (40in) between plants


Sowing Outdoors

  • Sow 2-3 seeds close together in a group 2cm (1in) deep
  • Allow 1m (40in) between groups
  • After germination, leave only the strongest seedling in each group, (you can plant the other seedlings somewhere else in the garden)



  • Water frequently, especially during dry spells
  • use an organic fertiliser to help fruit production



  • Cut fruit when 10-15cm (4-6in) long
  • Regular harvesting prolongs the cropping season
  • Larger fruit can be left to grow and used as marrows

Growing Tips

  • Can be successfully grown in containers on a patio but must be regularly watered and cropped
