Cultivation
Sow from April, one seed to its own pot or module (ideally Rootrainers), under cover. Once the plants are at least 5cm (2in) tall, plant them out. You can also sow direct into the garden May-July, not before, as they will be killed by the frost.

Care Tips

Will grow best in a sunny position with fertile, well-dug soil that has had plenty of organic matter added. Support with a cane wigwam, with one plant growing up each cane. Protect seedlings from slugs.
