How

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).

Care

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).

Hint

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.
