How

Sow direct in a sunny, well drained position. Cover, firm down and moisten. Thin to 3-5cm spacing after 2 weeks. Sow successive crops at 2 week intervals.

Care

Cultivate soil well and mix in compost and Yates Blood & Bone before sowing to help ensure a good crop. Weekly applications of Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food will improve plant growth. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
