Use a commercial seed-starting mix and small pots or flats to start them indoors.
Best time to sow: January - February, but can be sown until June inside.
Sow one or two seeds 3 mm deep in pots or in rows 5-7 cm apart in flats. Moisten the starting mix.
To maintain the moisture while the seeds germinate, place the pots in a plastic bag or cover the flats with clear plastic. Set the pots or flats in warm in spot out of bright light and use a heating mat to keep the growing mix between +18-20C. If you place them in sunlight, vent the plastic so they don’t get too hot.
Plant the seeds outdoors at the same depth and spacing.
