How To Grow

Sow 12mm (½”) deep, direct in final position. Sow 4 or 5 seeds in clumps, later thinning to the two strongest seedlings. Allow 40-50cm (16-20”) between clumps. When the young plants have 5 or 6 leaves, pinch out growing tips to encourage growth of side shoots. Grow alongside a trellis or fence if space is limited. Keep plants well watered, and prepare the soil well by adding organic material and a complete fertiliser.
