How

Take special care as this seed is very fine. Spread thinly and press lightly (as seeds need light to germinate) into trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix.  Water with a fine mist spray. Keep trays in a warm place and retain moisture by covering with glass or plastic cling wrap. Transplant when large enough to handle.

Care

Choose a semi shaded position in well drained soil. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Water moderately and feed with Yates Thrive Soluble Flower & Fruit Plant Food regularly.  Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Pinch out flower buds as they form and prune to keep plant low and to promote leaf growth.

Storage

Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
