WHERE TO SOW
Early sowings can be made into pots or modules under glass at 21 degrees C. Later sowings can be made direct into growing site, sowing 2 seeds per sowing station. Sow in blocks as below.
WHAT TO DO NEXT Pot raised seedlings should be gradually hardened off in a cold frame before transplanting into the plot once all risk of frost has passed. Plant in blocks, spacing plants 45cm (18in) apart each way to aid pollination by wind.
