  • Soak seeds overnight
  • Sow as early as possible in spring
  • 2 to 3 seeds per 7cm pot
  • Optimum soil temperature: 15° and above
  • When large enough to handle transplant to a well-drained sunny or partially shaded site
  • Once they reach 7-10cm tall plant out in raised rows 90cm apart with 30-45cm between plants
