Gradually harden off before planting out, spacing plants 45cm (18in) apart between plants and 45cm (18in) between the rows. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to 7-10cm (3-4in) apart , then once plants are 15cm (6in) tall , they can be lifted and transplanted to their final planting positions, spaced the same as detailed above.
