When To Sow - When to Harvest
Growing Tips:To ensure the highest rate of germination and to account for the unpredictable British weather, grow these indoors on a warm sun soaked window cill or inside a greenhouse. Once the seedlings are large enough, you can then begin to plant these into pots. If the weather allows, you could also plant directly into your vegetable plot.
Keep well watered if planting indoors, but do not allow for the soil to become consistently soaked. This can cause mould, hinder root development and be detremental to the plants health.
