Sow seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost. Place seeds on the surface of a free-draining seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of sowing mix or vermiculite. Place in a propagator at 18-21C (65-70F) until after germination, which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Plant in final situation when plants are 10cm (4in) high, 45cm (18in) apart.

For indoor crops, plant into growbags or pots. For outdoor crops, acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting in sunny, fertile, moist, well drained soil, after all risk of frost.

Feed plants weekly with a high potash tomato fertilizer once first fruits have set.
