Sow Autumn to late Winter, Spring too in cold areas. Avoid flowering during periods of frost. Prepare flat trenches 15cm (6") wide and 25mm (1") deep, allowing 1m (3") between rows. Plant in a zigzag pattern then fill with soil and firm down gently. If soil is damp and dark no further water is required until seedlings emerge. Protect from birds with netting or black cotton, particularly during early growth. Train young seedlings up trellis or support. Keep well watered. Seedlings emerge 7-10 days.
