Sowing Indoors: Sow in seed trays of compost 0.5cm deep and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Seedlings will usually appear within 14-21 days so keep the seed bed moist. When plants are well established they can be transplanted into large pots or direct outdoors if weather conditions allow.
Sow/Plant outdoors: Cultivate soils to a depth of 15cms and rake the top surface to provide a fine crumb to plant the seeds into.
