For greenhouse crops sow indoors, 0.5cm (¼in) deep, thinly 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.
For outdoor crops delay sowing until March or April.
Transplant to individual pots when 10-15cm (4-6in) tall. Grow on in cooler conditions.
Plant out April to May, to larger pots, growing bags or greenhouse border.
Harvest from August onwards.
