- Seeds need darkness and moist soil to get the best germination. Cover pots/trays in polythene wrap or plastic to retain moisture.
- Once placed in darkness, allow between 10-20 days. Not all seeds will germinate at the same time, ensure the soil/compost is kept moist.

- with a spacing of 6 to 8 inches in between seedlings. You can transfer outside after the last frost, gradually acclimatizing the plants outdoors.
