How to grow

How

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

Care

Grow in sun or semi-shade. Enrich soil with organic fertiliser (such as Yates Blood & Bone or Dynamic Lifter Organic Plant Food) before planting. Feed plants regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food. Continuous harvest promotes new growth. Protect plants from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Allow plants to establish before beginning to harvest. In cool climates, grow in pots that can be moved under cover for winter.
