Planting instructions
Outdoors: sow thinly March-April, in a seed bed, 1.5cm (_") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Water well until plants are established. Transplant, 15cm (6") apart, into 15cm (6") deep holes made with a dibber. Allow 30cm (1') between rows. Water seedlings, but do not fill holes with soil. Or sow indoors, January-February, 0.5cm (_") deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5cm (2") apart to other trays, when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts) before planting out, May-July, into well-cultivated, fertile soil. Harvest: October-March.

We’re making the Homebase website better.


We have been renovating and refreshing to create a new website which we couldn’t wait to show you. The new look and feel makes it easier to browse our great ranges and discover loads of ideas & advice. We are also changing how we deliver our product ranges, so for a little while, there will not be an option for Home Delivery but that will be back really soon. All our stores are open as normal and our team members will be happy to see you.
