Sow direct where they are to grow. Sow a few seeds in clumps 30-40cm apart, later thinning to the strongest of each clump. Sow successive crops at 3-4 week intervals.

Care

Best grown in a sunny, well drained garden bed. Add compost, Yates Blood & Bone and Yates Hydrangea Pinking Liquid Lime & Dolomite to soil before planting. Keep well watered and apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food every 2 weeks. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Great companion plant for strawberries and broad beans. Begin picking young leaves as required or harvest the entire plant when mature.
