How To Grow

Sow seeds 25mm (2in) deep, 7-10cm apart into dark, damp soil. Avoid watering for 2-3 days afterwards. Ensure soil has been prepared with organic compost & aged animal manure.

Allow 50cm between rows. Ensure danger of frost has passed & protect from wind.

Water regularly. Additional fertilising is not required as legumes produce their own nitrogen.

Regular harvest will result in prolonged yields. Best picked when young.
