|Useful/additional information||Sow seeds April to May in pots of moist seed compost and cover with a 2cm (1 inch) layer or compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 20-25C (68-77F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 6-10 days. Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Sow 2 seeds, 5cm (2 inches) deep at 23cm (9 inch) intervals in rows 45-6cm (18-24 inches) apart. After all risk of frost; plant out with support of strong canes, sticks or netting. Provide a sunny sheltered spot on rich, well drained soil, raked to a fine tilth. Hoe between plants regularly and water regularly. You can also give plants compost mulch to combat dry periods. Harvest regularly while pods are still young for the best crops.|
