How to Guide
Sow seed thinly in pre-watered shallow rows, and cover with a little soil. Keep soil moist at all times. As seedlings develop, thin them to about 2cm (1in) apart.
Plant out to their permanent positions in late autumn, allowing 30cm (12in) between plants and 45cm (18in) between rows of plants. The application of a high nitrogen fertiliser the following February is beneficial.
