If planting directly in the ground, are you planting in an open field, or is a trellis in the plans? If the former, I would plant 3 groups of three seeds per hill--in wet climates--or basin--in dry climates. Once the first or second true leaf has formed, thin out to the best seedling in each group. If trellised, plant groups of seeds every 3 feet along the trellis, and thin out as above.

It works in many parts of the U.S., though parts of the Pacific Northwest have just as much trouble as the UK!
