Young plants must receive lots of light and cool temperatures to prevent them from getting too tall and falling over. When the weather gets warm in April , place outside on warm days and bring in at night. Water only when soil appears to be drying. Fertilize with a water soluble fertilizer, every two weeks, with equal parts N.K.P. All plants must be hardened outside before planting in the garden. If you are using a cold frame, plant about 1 week earlier than above.
