Product details

How

Each “seed” is a cluster of 1-4 true seeds in a corky outer coating. Soak for two hours before sowing to ensure water penetrates to seeds. Sow direct where they are to grow or in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. When 3-5cm tall, separate clustered seedlings and transplant

Care

Grow in a sunny, well-drained position. Incorporate compost and Yates Blood & Bone into soil before planting. Make successive sowings every few weeks. Water at base of plant to reduce risk of disease

Hint

Great companion plant for beans, broccoli, lettuce, onions, potatoes and peas. Pick young leaves and add to salad mixes

Storage

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