GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Sow indoors from February to April. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow 0,5 cm 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 5 cm apart to further 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, May-June, 15 cm apart, into well-drained soil, when frosts are over.
