How To Grow
Sow 12mm (½”) deep, direct in final position. Sow 2 or 3 seeds in clumps, later thinning to the strongest seedling. Allow 40-50cm (16-
20”) between clumps. When young plants have 5 or 6 leaves, pinch out growing tips to encourage growth of side shoots. Keep well watered. Seedlings emerge 6-10 days.
