    Product Details

    Description

    This is a sturdy plant with an abundant crop of large, tasty deep purple fruits.

    It is best grown under glass from Jan-March and needs warmth (20 degrees) to germinate.  Once it has germinated transfer it to a warm, light place to stop the plants from becoming leggy.

    As the plants get bigger, transfer them into 9cm pots and grow on. Harden off to prepare for planting out. They can go into a heated greenhouse in April or an unheated one in May.

    Remove the growing tip when around 40cm high to encourage the plant to bush out, water regularly and feed every 2 weeks.

    Plant Care Tips

    Sow Jan-Apr 2cm apart in seed trays, cover lightly with compost and keep at 20 degrees
    Once 2 true leaves have appeared prick off into individual pots and grow on
    Plant out into grow bags or large pots either in the greenhouse, polytunnel or even in a very sunny sheltered spot outside
    Feed plants as soon as the first fruits appear and weekly thereafter
