Planting Advice

Sow early spring to early summer – all year round in frost free warm areas. Sow 5mm (1/4”) deep in pots or trays of seed raising mix compost. Transplant to 10-15cm (4-6”) pots in a warm, sunny spot. Transfer to final fruiting position when sturdy enough. Space plants 75cm (30”) apart each way. Feed regularly when the first truss has set. Pinch out the side shoots as they appear. Can also be sown direct in final growing position, especially your late crop. Harvest when red ripe, although slightly coloured fruit will ripen indoors.
