Sow 0.5in (1.5cm) deep in a seed bed. Transplant to final growing positions when seedlings are 5-10cm tall, taking care to avoid damage to the roots. Make holes 6in (15cm) deep and 6in apart, allowing 1ft (30cm) between rows. Drop a plant into each hole and water it in. Do NOT firm soil round the plant.
