Sow

Care

Grow in well drained soil in sun or semi-shade. Enrich soil with organic matter and fertiliser (such as Yates Blood & Bone or Dynamic Lifter) before planting. Feed plants regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food. Continuous harvest promotes new growth. Protect plants from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

When harvesting, don’t cut the stems, pull them gently from the crown. Keep well watered in summer to keep the stems juicy. Don’t eat leaves as they contain a toxin. Remove flowering stems.
