Sow indoors for surest results, in trays of compost. Cover very lightly with fine soil. Water well and place on a warm windowsill. A temperature of 15-20?C (60-68?F) is ideal. Seedlings appear in 14-42 days. Transplant seedlings 5cm (2") apart to further trays when large enough to handle. (Always handle by a leaf, never by the stem.) Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts) before planting out 25cm (10") apart.
