Sow 4 or 5 seeds 12mm (½”) deep in clumps 50cm (20”) apart. Thin to strongest two seedlings per position. Pinch out growing tips at 5-6 leaf stage to encourage side shoots. Keep well watered and prepare soil with organic matter and fertiliser. Seedlings emerge 6-10 days.
When To Plant
Spring to Summer
These seeds may be treated with a fungicide (Thiram or Apron XL), do not eat the seeds or feed them to animals.
Fungicide treatment is an AQIS requirement for certain varieties of seeds. It does not affect your crops or harm insects such as bees.
If your packet has been treated it will be well marked with a warning and the seeds will be dyed a distinct colour.
