For best results sow into trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down and keep moist. Transplant when large enough to handle (4-6 weeks).
Choose a sunny, well-drained position. Prior to planting, work in Yates Blood & Bone. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food every 2-3 weeks for rapid, vigorous growth. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem. Control leaf-eating grubs with a Yates caterpillar killer (Success or Dipel) or a Yates Vegetable Dust (Derris).
Great companion plant for beans, beets, celery, cucumber, onions, peas, potatoes, sage and rosemary. Make successive sowings every few weeks. Add Yates Hydrangea Pinking Liquid Lime & Dolomite to acid soils.
