Product details

How

Sow direct where they are to grow in cultivated, well drained soil. Make a trench 4cm deep and 15cm wide. Sow seeds at 15cm intervals along each side of trench. Cover with soil and water well  Do not water again until seedlings emerge

Care

Choose a sunny, well-drained position. For best results apply Yates Hydrangea Pinking Liquid Lime & Dolomite.  If low temperatures are experienced in early spring, some bud drop may occur. This is natural and new flowers will quickly follow. Plants may need some support as they can reach 1 metre in height. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem

Hint

Great companion plant for cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, potatoes & spinach. Avoid overwatering - seeds may rot before germination if soil is too wet.

Storage

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