We have chosen 4 colourful, easy to grow varieties to encourage children into the garden. Indoor Planting:Sow the seeds 5mm deep in trays of moist compost, be careful not to over-water. Store in a warm place not in direct sunlight, and ensure the compost is kept moist. It is a good idea to cover with a clear plastic bag until the seeds germinate. Once the seedlings appear, remove the plastic. It is also useful to label the trays for future reference. Growing On:When the seedlings are strong enough to handle they can be transplanted into bigger pots or trays. Be careful when easing the roots out as they can easily be damaged. Do not overcrowd the plants. Keep the pots in a warm, light position and turn regularly. Once all chance of frost has passed the plants can be transplanted into growing beds outside. Harden off first.
