How

For early sowing, raise in pots of Yates Seed Raising Mix in a well-lit, protected spot. Transplant after 2-4 weeks. For direct sowing press 3-4 seeds into the centre of a shallow depression (so that water is directed to plant roots) on top of a raised mound of moist soil 70cm apart. Later thin to the two strongest plants.

Care

Select a sunny, well-drained position. Add compost and Yates Blood & Bone before sowing and feed regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food. Keep well watered at base of plant. Pick fruit at when small and tender for prolonged harvest. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Great companion plant for beans, corn, radish, basil and nasturtium. Keep well mulched.
