How To Grow

Sow 12mm (half-inch) deep, direct in final position. Sow 4-5 seeds in clumps, later thin to two strongest seedlings. Allow 100cm (3ft) between rows and 40-50cm (16-20in) between clumps. At 5 or 6 leaves pinch out the growing tips to encourage side shoots. Keep well watered and prepare the soil with organic material and or complete fertiliser.
