Sow direct into soil prepared by digging and raking at a depth of 50mm (2"), spacing the seeds 15-23cm (6-9") apart. Best sown alternately in double rows allowing 23cm (9") between the two lines forming each row. Allow 60-90cm (24-36") between further rows. Germination up to 21 days. Can also be sown in pots or trays of compost on a windowsill or in a greenhouse for eventual planting outside. Grows best in a sheltered site, but not shaded, in well-drained soil. It is advisable to pinch out tips of plants when first pods have set to deter blackfly.

Summer-sown plants may require protection with cloches or fleece in Oct/Nov if the weather is particularly bad
