|How To Grow
Sow 12mm (½”) deep direct in final position when soil has warmed up. Sow 2 seeds in clumps, later thinning to the strongest seedlings. Allow 60cm (2’) between clumps. For early crops, sow in punnets or trays, planting out when strong enough. Soil should not be over fertilised to avoid excessive leaf growth. Keep well watered. When young plants have 5 or 6 leaves pinch out their growing tips to encourage side shoots. Seedlings emerge 6-10 days.
