Propagating by seed

From Late Winter TO Late Spring

Sow seeds in trays in the greenhouse in late Winter. Sow the seeds about 1" apart, and thin out the weaker plants as they grow. Or, for a later crop, sow direct in the soil in mid Spring.

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Summer

Seedlings started off in the greenhouse should be hardened off gradually before being planted outside. Plant 12" - 24" apart (depending on the size of the variety being grown) and allow at least 1' between rows. Firm the plants in well, and give them a really good puddle of water. Seedlings that were sown direct in the soil should be thinned out to 12" apart (or replanted)
