Sow seeds April to early June indoors 3/4in deep, in 3in pots of moist seed sowing mix. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 68-77°F. Direct light aids germination. Keep the surface of the seed sowing mix moist but not waterlogged;germination will usually take 5-10 days. Once germinated, grow in cool conditions until all risk of frost has passed and the plants are large enough to be transplanted. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting in rich, fertile, well drained soil in full sun 36in apart. A thick mulch of organic matter spread around the plants will help to conserve moisture at the roots.
