How to grow


Full sun


Sow direct where they are to grow into shallow furrows. Cover with Yates Seed Raising Mix and water gently.


Grow in fertile soil in a sunny well-drained position. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food regularly and keep seedlings well watered. Make successive sowings every few weeks. Shoots are crisp early in the season and more pungent later. Easy to grow in containers. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.


Avoid overwatering - seeds may rot before germination if soil is too wet.
