Planting Advice

Drop seeds 12mm deep, direct in final position. Sow 4 or 5 seeds in clumps, later thinning to the two strongest seedlings. Allow 100cm between rows and 40-50 cm 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 soil well by adding organic material and or complete fertiliser.

Watering needs
