To grow outside, sow seed in early spring and grow as described.

Growing – Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle into 8cm (3in) pots and plant out into grow bags, pots etc when large enough at 45cm (18in) apart. When approximately 2cm (8in) tall gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions and plant out 45c

Aftercare – Provide adequate support and tie in regularly. Remove all side shoots as they appear and restrict the plant to one main stem. Outdoor plants remove growing tip in late summer to hasten ripening.
