Where to Sow Early sowings can be made under glass at a temperature of 16 C, sow 3 seeds per 8cm (3in) pot filled with seed sowing compost. Outside sowings can be made from May onwards into the growing site 5cm (2in) deep. Sow 2-3 seeds every 20-30cm(8-12in) apart with rows spaced 60cm (24in) apart. Or sow direct into containers.
What to do next Seedlings sown under glass should be gradually hardened off before planting outside in late May to the above spacing, once all risk of frost has past. Alternatively plant into large containers filled with a good potting compost and grow on a sunny patio. Water regularly during dry weather.
Handy Tip Makes an attractive and productive container , equally at home surrounded by pots of flowers on a sunny patio.
