This variety holds its stem and leaves straight upwards which means the plants are tidier and less prone to disease. Crisp ,crunchy stems add flavour to salads, stir-fries and other dishes.
Choose a sunny, well-drained spot in the garden. Dig soil well and add Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Form a groove about 1cm deep into the moist soil. Place the tape flat in the bottom of the groove (remember the tape can be cut to any length) and lightly cover. Keep well watered. Allow 15cm between rows. Thin young plants if necessary.
Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food regularly and keep seedlings well watered. Make successive sowings every few weeks. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
Avoid overwatering - seeds may rot before germination if soil is too wet. Shoots are crisp early in the season and develop a stronger flavour when mature.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
