How To Grow

Sow Spring and Summer, all year round in warm areas, 25mm (1”) deep in damp soil – avoid watering for a day or two afterwards. Sow 10-15cm (4-6”) apart, allowing 50- 60cm (20-24”) between rows. Ensure the danger of frosts has passed, and protect plants from wind. Water and mulch well during hot and dry weather, and spray flowers with a fine mist of water as this can help the pods to set. Seedlings emerge 7-10 days.
