Sowing[edit]

Sow thinly in pots or trays of seed compost and cover with a fine layer. Firm gently and keep moist. Cover with glass, polythene or propagator lid. Keep at approximately 15-20°C (60-68°F). Seedlings appear in 7-14 days.[1]

Transplanting[edit]

Remove cover when seedlings appear. Transplant to individual pots when 10cm (4in) tall. Grow on at approximately 15°C (60°F).[1]

Transplant to growing positions April-May.[1]

Stand outside for a few days in late May (avoid frosts). Transplant to a sunny spot outside.[1]

Aftercare[edit]

Pinch out side shoots regularly and growing tips once 5-6 trusses have set. Apply a liquid feed every 2-3 weeks when first trusses have set.[1]

Once fruit is fully ripened.
