GROWING GUIDE

Sowing Instructions: Sow any time of the year except summer.

For sowings in winter to early spring: Sow onto the surface of a good free draining seed compost and cover very lightly with a sprinkling of compost so as not to exclude light completely. Stand the container/tray in a coldframe or sheltered spot outdoors. Keep the compost moist, protect from heavy rain, but not frost which is beneficial. After 5 weeks, bring into warmth of 13-18C and germination will take place.

For sowings at any other time: Sow as above but place container in the fridge instead of outdoors for 5 weeks, then bring into warmth of 13-18C.

Growing Instructions: When seedlings have 2 leaves, pot up individually into 8cm pots and grow on as cool as possible keeping them shaded from strong sunlight. When well established, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out 46-60cm apart.
