Product details

How

Sow direct where it is to grow or raise in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Transplant when no more than 3-4cm high.

Care

Plant in a well-drained, sunny position adding Yates Garden Lime and Yates Blood & Bone to the soil before planting. Water regularly and apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food weekly. Make successive sowings every few weeks. Water at base of plant, rather than overhead, to minimise risk of disease. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Great companion plant for beans, beets, carrots, cucumbers, onion, peas, radish and strawberries. Head lettuce prefer to be well mulched in hot conditions.

Storage

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