Propagating by seed

From Mid Spring TO Mid Summer

Sow seeds in a good seed compost from early spring to mid-summer. Seeds should germinate in 2 or 3 days if kept moist and covered. For continual cropping, sow seeds at weekly intervals. They will be ready to thin and plant out once the seedlings have produced a second pair of leaves.

 

Planting

From Mid Spring TO Mid Summer

Seedlings will be ready to plant out once they have a second pair of leaves. Plant them into a rich compost, ideally into a veg trug or into large pots that can easily be protected from slugs. Plant two or three seedlings in each pot or, space them out 8 inches apart in a trug. Leave them in partial shade having watered them well. For continual cropping, plant seedlings at least a week apart through to mid-summer.
