Product details

How

Sow direct in a sunny, well drained position. Cover, firm down and moisten. Thin after 4 weeks. Sow successive crops at 4-5 weekly intervals.

Care

Cultivate soil well before sowing as deep, well-drained soils give best results.  Add Yates Blood & Bone and Yates Superphosphate to soil before sowing to help ensure a good crop. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Great companion plant for beans, coriander, cucumber, marigold, lettuce, peas, radish, rosemary, sage & tomato. To aid germination, maintain even moisture by laying a plank of wood over row.  Remove after germination. Dont over fertilise the ground as this may produce split roots
