A temperature of 15-20 degree C (60-68 degree F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, May-June, 60 cm (2-feet) apart, into well-drained, fertile soil, when frosts are over.

Allow 60 cm (2-feet) between sowing positions. Sow two seeds on edge per position. Early sowings benefit from cloche protection. Thin to leave the stronger plant.
