Planting Advice

Sow 5mm (1/4”) deep in pots or trays of seed raising mix. Transplant to 10-15cm (4-6”) pots in a warm, sunny spot. Transfer to final fruiting position when sturdy enough. Space plants 50cm (20”) apart each way, supporting plants with a stake. Water daily, and when the first truss has set, feed regularly. Pinch out the side shoots as they appear. Can also be sown direct in final position, especially your late crop. Seedlings emerge 10-14 days.

Watering needs

Keep your plant well watered.
