Sow Autumn through to Spring but avoid flowering during frost periods. Prepare flat trenches 15cm (6”) wide and 5cm (2”) deep. Plant seeds in zigzag fashion along the middle of the trench allowing 5cm (2”) between each seed. Fill trench with soil and firm down gently. Protect from birds with netting or black cotton during the early stages of growth. Light staking recommended. Keep well watered. Choose a sunny position with well prepared rich soil. Seedlings emerge 7-10 days.
