Sow and Plant
Sow under cover in late spring, planting out when all risk of frost past or direct into the soil from then onwards.
Our Garden Planner can produce a personalised calendar of when to sow, plant and harvest for your area.
Requires very little attention. Soak seeds in water overnight before planting to improve germination.
Pull a few leaves from the outside of the plant regularly from mid summer onwards to produce more growth.
