Sow

Direct where they grow, in mounds. Sow 4-5 seeds in each mound and thin to the two strongest plants.

Care

Requires a sunny, well-drained position. Add Thrive Granular All Purpose Fertiliser for best results. Water regularly at root level. When vines are 2 metres long and carry ample flowers, pinch off ends to contain growth. Ready to harvest when vines have died down. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem.
