How To Grow
Sow 12mm (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. Early crops can be sown in punnets or seedling trays and planted out when weather is warm enough.
When To Plant
Spring and Summer.
