How to grow


Full sun


Sow into trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down, water gently and keep moist through germination period. Transplant when large enough to handle.


Choose a sunny well-drained, sheltered position. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting and fertilise regularly with Yates Thrive All Purpose Soluble Plant Food and switch to Thrive Soluble Flower & Fruit Plant Food when first buds appear. Keep well watered. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.


If plants are likely to require staking for support, ensure stakes are placed in position at planting time.
