How to Grow
Sow direct where they are to grow. Cover with Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down well and keep moist. Avoid overcrowding by thinning out and discarding excess seedlings when 4-5 weeks old.
Sow into deep, well drained soil in a sunny position. Add Yates Blood & Bone to soil before sowing to help ensure a good crop. Water well in early stages. Harvest roots while young and tender. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
