How to Guide

Sowing Outdoors

Sow seeds thinly in shallow, short, pre-watered rows. Lightly cover with a little soil. Keep the seedbed moist at all times.

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 ensure a long white shaft, draw up soil round the plants as they develop.
