Sow the seeds in compost, in seed trays or in small pots from the beginning of March indoors, end of March-April outside in a seedbed, about 1 cm deep.When seedlings are large enough to handle, plant them individually, keeping them inside until they have 4-6 leaves.Plant outside, spacing 16in x 18in, in well-drained soil. Be sure to water the plants in sunny spells; protect from birds and slugs.
