Prepare flat trenches 15cm (6in) wide and 5cm (2in) deep.
Plant seeds into dark, damp soil in a zig-zag fashion along the middle of the trench allowing 5cm (2in) between each seed. Fill trench with soil and firm down gently. Rows should be spaced 45cm (18in) apart and approx. 2m (6.5ft) long.
Protect from birds with netting or black cotton during the early stages of growth. We advise using sticks or twigs to support the crop and this will make picking easier and improve yields.
Seedlings emerge 7-10 days.
Once germinated water regularly.
