Propagating by seed

From Early Spring TO Early Summer

Sow seeds in trays in the greenhouse in Spring, or outdoors from after last frosts. Sow the seeds about 1" apart, in damp compost, cover with compost, then water, and label. Keep the compost moist, but not wet,.and thin out the weaker plants as they grow.

 

Planting

From Early Summer TO Mid 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)
