Useful/additional information Sow seeds early May to July outdoors 4-5cm (1½ to 2 inches) deep in well-prepared soil. Allow 15-20cm (6 to 8 inches) between plants and 45cm (18 inches) between rows. Germination and establishment can be poor in cold wet soils, in this case sow seeds mid April in pots indoors, plant out from late May. Seeds can be sown in March for protected growing in greenhouse. Flowers are self pollinating (no insects required). Pick regularly whilst young to give highest yields and extend the season. Hoe regularly and keep well watered and mulched during dry periods. Harvest regularly whilst young for highest yields and to extend the season.
