How To Grow

Sow thinly directly where they are to crop, 15mm (1/2”) deep into prepared soil that has already been watered. Thin to 30cm (1’) apart. Water well until plants are established, keep moist and weed free. If desired, plants can be kept smaller by pinching back regularly. Pick leaves and stems as required and harvest ripe seeds once they have turned brown. Seedlings emerge 7-21 days.
