Sow 25mm (1in) deep in dark, damp soil & avoid watering for a day or two afterwards. Ensure soil has been well prepared with organic compost & aged animal manure.
Sow 7-10cm (3-4in) apart, allowing 50cm (20in) between rows. Ensure the danger of frosts has passed and protect plants from the wind. Plant in 3-5 metre (10-16ft) rows and remove weeds regularly.
Water well during dry periods.
Additional fertilising is not required as legumes produce their own nitrogen.
Regular harvesting will result in continued yields.
