Grow Notes
Plant spring/early summer. The soil should be well drained and fertile, in a sunny spot protected from strong winds.

Can be grown on the ground or as a climber on a trellis. A trellis or support structure will help with keeping water on the roots and not the leaves as they are susceptible to Powdery Mildew, so overhead watering should be avoided.

Sow
Sow direct or raise seedlings in Spring, after frosts have passed, or early Summer.

Sow at 10mm depth with 40cm plant spacing and 80cm row spacing.

Keep soil moist but never wet.

Germination
4- 10 days at 18-35°C
