How to Grow
Direct into growing position or raise in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Transplant when 3-4cm high.
Plant in a well-drained, sunny position adding Yates Hydrangea Pinking Liquid Lime & Dolomite and Yates Blood & Bone to the soil before planting. Water regularly and apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food weekly. Make successive sowings every few weeks. Water at base of plant, rather than overhead, to minimise risk of disease. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
Great companion plant for beans, beets, carrots, cucumbers, onion, peas, radish and strawberries.
