Sowing Indoors

  • Almost fill a tray with moist seed compost. We recommend using Gro-Sure Seed and Cutting Compost or Westland John Innes Seed Sowing Compost
  • Sow seeds thinly over the surface, and lightly cover them with a little more compost
  • Place in the warmth 10-15°C (50-60°F), and keep moist
  • When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings 5cm (2in) apart to trays of potting compost
  • Gradually accustom them to conditions outside for 2-3 weeks before planting out to their cropping positions 25cm (10in) apart from late spring onwards

 

Sowing Outdoors

  • Sow seeds thinly in a shallow row, lightly covering with a little soil
  • Keep soil moist

 

Thinning

  • Thin seedlings to about 25cm (10in) apart when large enough to handle
  • Ensure remaining seedlings are still firm in the soil

 

Aftercare

  • Water plants generously in dry weather

 

Growing Tips

  • Pick when large enough to use
  • Frequent picking will give a longer cropping period
  • Sow every three weeks to keep a continuous supply
