SOWING, SEEDS, PLANTING
Sow under cover in late March. Soak the seed overnight, then sow 2.5cm vertically, one to a 9cm pot. The seeds are large and may rot off before they germinate if sown flat. Once they have 5 or 6 leaves, they're ready to go out. Harden them off by standing them outside during the day and then plant them out once the frosts are over. You can also sow them direct into the ground from April-May outside if you wait until after the frosts.
CARE TIPS Water well, and avoid the plant becoming dry. Mulch well. Dig in plenty of manure before planting.
Store throughout the winter in a place with good air circulation. For best results, hang in an onion bag.
July - October, at about 10-12cm diameter
Brilliant for soups and roasted in the oven. The seeds make excellent Pumpkin seed and cinnamon brittle.
