How to Grow
Sow direct where they are to grow or in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down and keep moist. Thin out to 10-15cm apart when about 12cm tall.
Grow in fertile soil in a sunny well-drained position. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food regularly and keep well watered. Make successive sowings every few weeks. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
Great companion plant for carrots, celery, onions, parsnip and strawberries. Start harvesting when stems are 2cm thick.
