Planting Advice

Sow 1.5cm deep in a seed bed. Transplant to final growing positions when seedlings are 5-10cm tall, taking care to avoid damage to the roots. Make holes 15cm deep and 6in apart, allowing 30cm between rows. Drop a plant into each hole and water it in. Do NOT firm soil round the plant.
