  • Location: Full sun
  • Likes good drainage and enough humus to prevent drying out too quickly
  • Sow undercover in spring in 7cm pots 2.5cm deep at a minimum temperature of 10°C and harden off before planting out
  • Spacing 30cm between both plants and rows, plant in blocks to aid pollination
  • Mulch any roots that appear to help retain moisture
