Sow indoors March to April. Sow 0.5cm deep into individual pots 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 7-14 days. In late May or early June, acclimatise plants to outside conditions. 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. Plant out to large patio pots or tubs and place in a sheltered, sunny growing position. Alternatively plant out into a greenhouse border or grow bags. Remove the growing tip of the plant when six or seven trusses have begun to develop and remove any side shoots that appear. This will help concentrate the plants energy where it is need most. Plants will require some support with a trellis or canes as they grow larger and the trusses begin to develop.
