How to Grow
Sow direct in a sunny, well drained position. Cover, firm down and moisten. Thin to 3-5cm spacing after 2 weeks. Sow successive crops at 2 week intervals.
Cultivate soil well and mix in compost and Yates Blood & Bone before sowing to help ensure a good crop. Weekly applications of Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food will improve plant growth. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
Great companion plant for beans, carrots, corn, cucumbers, lettuce, parsnips, peas and nasturtiums. Harvest while roots are young and tender. Mulch well to retain even soil moisture.
