How

Sow Direct where they are to grow. Cover with Yates Seed Raising Mix, firm down and keep moist.

Care

Grow in full sun in winter, part shade in summer. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food regularly to increase foliage. Use the fresh young leaves for flavouring. Mature plants will flower and seed. When seeds begin to brown, you can cut stem and place upside down in paper bag to dry for later use in cooking. Protect plants from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Great companion plant for carrots, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and rocket. Seeds can be added to soups, pies and sweet dishes.
