How To Grow

Sow thinly, 6mm (quarter-inch) deep in rows 30cm (1ft) apart. Keep moist; seedlings emerge in 6-10 days. Thin out to 25mm (1in) apart and water well to replace any soil dislodged from roots. On clay soils add sand and organic matter - liquid feeds every few weeks will promote faster growth but do not overfeed particularly with fertilisers high in nitrogen.
