Place in a propagator at 18-21C until after germination, which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots. Plant in final situation when plants are 1cm high, 45cm apart. For indoor crops, plant into growbags or pots. Feed plants weekly with a high potash tomato fertilizer once first fruits have set.
