How to Guide

Sowing Outdoors

Sow seeds thinly in pre-watered, short, shallow rows, lightly covering the seeds with soil. Keep soil moist at all times.

Row Spacing

15cm/6in

Sowing Distance

45cm/18in

Hardening Off/Planting Out

Plant out from May onwards when plants are about 15cm / 6in tall. Allow 20cm / 8in between plants and 45cm / 18in between rows. Make holes about 15cm / 6in deep with a dipper and drop a plant into each. Fill each hole with water, but not with soil.

Aftercare

To produce a long, white shaft, draw up soil around plants as they develop.
