Sow seeds in a seed tray or punnet at a depth of 15mm (half-inch). Thin as necessary and transplant to the growing position when 20cm (8in) tall, avoiding damage to roots. Water the seedlings into 15cm (6in) deep holes, allowing 30cm (12in) between rows. Make successive sowings for a continuous supply. Harvest when stems are 25mm (1in) thick, usually about 16 weeks from sowing.
