WHEN TO SOW


January to April


Where to Sow


Sow seeds underglass 0.5cm(1/4 in) deep in pots or trays of good seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a temperature of 18–21°C .


What to do next


Prick out seedlings, once large enough to handle, into 9cm (3 1/2in) pots. Transplant to the greenhouse border soil, or individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high. Can also be planted outdoors once all risk of frost has past. Plants require sideshooting and support for the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.


HARVEST


July to October


Handy Tip


As fruits are very heavy we suggest only allowing 3 to 4 trusses per plant.


NUTRITIONAL VALUES


High in vitamin C and lycopene
