    Sow 20mm deep in seed trays or small pots filled with multi-purpose compost in mid April to early June. Place in a propagator at 20-25C until they germinate which usually takes up to 7 days. They can also be sown outdoors in warm soil from May after all risk of frost has passed. Plant them 60cm apart and keep them well watered once the fruiting commences. They are ready to harvest when they are 7-10cm long and if you keep picking them it will encourage more to form so it is possible to harvest from July until the first frosts.
