Sow indoors from January-beginning of February till December. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds.
Sow, 0.5cm deep, in trays of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of +20-25C is ideal. Keep moist.
Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days.
Transplant individually, when large enough to handle, to 7.5cm pots. 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, 25cm apart, into well-drained soil, when frosts are over.
