Sowing advice
Sow in spring to early summer, 10 to 12 weeks before last frost. Sow seed thinly in trays of seed raising mix and place in a cold frame or greenhouse. Press the seed down lightly into the soil, but do not cover as they need light to germinate. Once germination occurs keep in cooler conditions. As each seedling becomes large enough to handle, transplant it into 8cm pots or trays to grow on. Plant out once all risk of frost has gone,spacing 30cm apart.
