How To Grow
Drop seeds 12mm (half-inch) deep direct in final position. Sow 4 or 5 seeds in clumps, later thinning to the two strongest seedlings. Allow 50cm (20in) between rows 40-50cm (16-20in) between clumps. When the young plants have 5 or 6 leaves, pinch out their growing tips to encourage the growth of side shoots. Grow alongside a trellis or fence if space is limited. Keep the plants well watered and prepare the soil well by adding organic material and complete fertiliser.
When To Plant
Spring and Summer.
