How to Guide
Make a flat bottomed drill 15cm wide and water it well. Sow about ten seeds per 30cm, spacing them evenly in a zigzag manner. Cover with about 2cm of soil, and firm it down with the flat edge of a rake.
Allow about 60cm between rows. As seedlings emerge, the shoots are very attractive to birds, but a few short twigs placed over the row will give some protection. Very early spring sowings will benefit from cloche protection.
Keep well watered, especially in dry spells.
