Once germinated keep soil slightly dry and lower temp. to 15°C. Grow on. Transplant to 8cm pots if required. Can be planted out once soil temp. reaches 10°C. with 30cm spacing. Sow directly after last frost date. Sow 6mm deep into finely prepared soil. Thin to 30cm, carefully replanting thinned plants.
