How to Sow:
Choose a sheltered, well drained site in full sun. Sow these seeds in trays for subsequent transplanting or, after frosts, sow directly in a well prepared seedbed or container. Sow seeds 2 cm apart, in rows 30 cm apart and to a depth of 5 mm.
Keep the seedbed or trays evenly moist during the germination period (7-14 days). Apply vegetable fertiliser two weeks after germination for healthier plants and maximum crop. Protect your seedlings from slugs, snails and insect pests; go to mcgregors.co.nz for appropriate plant health and pest control products.
Hints & Tips:
Cut & come again keeps growing even after the initial yield. With good conditions, 3-4 harvests can be taken from 1 plant. When harvesting, cut leaves with scissors about 3 cm above the ground.
