Sow 7-10cm (3-4in) apart, allowing50cm (20in) between the rows. Plant in 3-5 metre (10-16ft) rows and remove weeds regularly.
Water well during dry periods and spray flowers with a fine rmist if hot & humid weather persists.
Additional fertilising is not required as legumes produce their own nitrogen.
