Useful/additional information For early crops under glass, sow seeds in heat from February onwards. Sow mid-April in pots indoors to plant outdoors late May or sow early May-July outdoors. Sow seeds individually in 7.5cm (3 inch) pots at 18-21C (65-70F) from mid-April for transplanting outdoors after frost risk has passed. Alternatively sow seeds direct outdoors in warm soil from late May to late July, although germination can be erratic in cold, wet soils. Sow 2 or 3 seeds 5cm (2 inches) deep, allowing 2cm (8 inches) between each group of seeds and 45cm (18 inches) between rows with no need to thin out. Use cloches to aid establishment of earliest sowings. Hoe regularly and keep well watered and mulched during dry periods. Harvest regularly whilst young for highest yields and to extend the season.
