How To Grow

Sow Autumn through to Spring to avoid flowering during frost periods. Prepare flat trenches 15cm (6”) wide and 5cm (2”) deep. Plant seeds in zigzag fashion along the middle of the trench allowing 5cm (2”) between each seed. Fill trench with soil and firm down gently. Rows should be spaced 45cm (18”) apart and approx. 2m (6.5’) long. Protect from birds with netting or black cotton during the early stages of growth. A trellis will be required and should run north to south for maximum sunlight. Keep well watered. Choose a sunny position on well prepared rich soil. Seedlings emerge 7-10 days.
