Sowing Period: April to May
Harvesting Period: July to September
Sow in a propagator using a good quality compost on a windowsill or in a greenhouse to germinate. When your seedlings are 7cm (2.5") high or when the risk of frost has passed, plant out in grow bags, tubs or soil, 30-40cm (12-16") apart and support with canes. Water and feed regularly with a high potash liquid fertiliser. Once the main growing shoot reaches 2.5m (8') pinch this out to restrict the plant's growing size. Trim the lateral side shoots when they reach 40cm (16"). Sowing ➞ Cropping – 9-12 weeks.
