Sow indoors January to March. Sow thinly 1.5cm deep into trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm, light position, away from cold draughts and out of intense, direct sunlight. Keep the compost just moist and be careful not to overwater, the compost should almost dry out before it is watered again. Seedlings should start to appear in approximately 14-28 days. Carefully transplant the seedlings to other trays when they are large enough to handle, spacing them 5cm apart and keep moist. In late May or early June, acclimatise plants to outside conditions, avoiding any late frosts. Place pots outside in a sheltered spot during the day and bring them inside again at night when the temperature falls. Do this for a week or two, until the plants have hardened off. Then transplant to a sunny growing position. Make 10cm deep holes in the soil with a dibber, spaced 15cm apart, in rows 30cm apart. Place seedlings in the hole and just water them in. This will bring soil down around the roots without compacting it and restricting the future growth of the stems. Keep the soil moist and remove any weeds as they appear.
