How to Guide
Rake soil to provide a firm, even surface. Sow seeds thinly in a pre-watered soil, lightly covering them with a little more soil.
Sowings made in semi circular lines create a natural "drift" effect. Keep moist until seedlings appear and as required in dry spells.
Potting on/Thining Out
When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to allow their development and to prevent overcrowding.
