Keep well watered throughout the season. Feed and mulch regularly.

Sow April to May. Sow seeds 2cm ( 3/4in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of good seed compost at 21- 25C (70-77F). Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag until after germination which takes 5-7 days.Seeds can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Do not sow in cold soils. Sow 2 seeds every 90cm (36in) and thin out to the best seedling. Ideally grow under cloches until the plant is established.

Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all frost risk has passed, 90cm (36in) apart each way.
