Sow direct in warm conditions or raise in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down and keep moist. Transplant when 5cm high.
Grow in sun or semi-shade. Enrich soil with organic fertiliser (such as Yates Blood & Bone or Dynamic Lifter) before planting. Feed plants regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food. Continuous harvest promotes new growth. Protect plants from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
Great companion plant for beans, marjoram, marigolds & thyme. For best fruit quality, harvest when skin is smooth and shiny. Leave 2cm of stem to improve storage.
