For outdoor plants in summer, sow indoors from February to April 5mm deep in trays of compost.
Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of +15-+20C is ideal. Keep moist.
Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days.
Transplant seedlings, 5 cm apart, to other trays when large enough to handle (always hold by a leaf, never by the stem).
Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, May-June, 20 cm apart, when frosts are over.
