How To Grow

Drop seeds 10cm (half inch) deep direct in final position. Sow 4 or 5 seeds in clumps, later thinning to the two strongest seedlings. Allow 100cm (3ft) between rows and 40-50cm (16-20in) between clumps. When the young plants have 5 or 6 leaves pinch out the growing tips to encourage growth of side shoots. Grow alongside a fence if space is limited. Keep plants well watered and prepare the soil well by adding organic material and/or complete fertiliser.

Spring and Summer.
