GROWING GUIDE

When to Sow: Sow October – March in a cool greenhouse or coldframe away from frosts.  Sow April onwards outdoors in flowering position.

Pre Sowing Treatment: Soak the seed until they start to swell – overnight is usually enough.

Sowing: Sow 1cm deep in good quality, moist, general purpose compost, 1 seed to a 7cm pot and maintain at 10-15C.  If a sharp or prolonged frost is expected, cover the plants with lightweight horticultural fleece.  Germination takes 20-30 days.

For outdoor sowings from April onwards, sow 1 cm deep directly into well raked, moist soil at the base of the supports.

Growing: When the seedlings have grown 4 leaves, remove the top 2 leaves to encourage bushiness.  Keep well protected from slugs and snails.  Grow on until after the last frosts, then when the plants are large enough, plant out in a sunny spot in moist, well drained soil.  Provide support for tall varieties with pea netting, trellis, bamboo cane wigwams etc..

Once the plants start to flower, keep picking the flowers and the plants will produce more and more flowers until the end of the season.

Caution: May cause stomach upset if ingested
