Sow indoors March-April. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow thinly, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, in a pot of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Transplant to individual pots when 10-15cm (4-6″) tall. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into warm, well-drained soil, April-June 60cm (2′) apart, when frosts are over. This variety may also be grown in a polytunnel or cool greenhouse, but generally performs better outside. Harvest: August-October.

Tip: This variety can also be grown in large patio pots with support to keep branches off the ground. Trim plants if they become too large.
