How to Sow:
Choose a well-drained site in full sun/part shade. Sow these seeds in trays for subsequent transplanting or, after frosts, sow directly in a well prepared seedbed. In trays sprinkle seeds on soil surface. When large enough, thin or transplant them to 25 cm apart. When planted directly in seedbed cover to depth of 1 cm.
Seedling Care:
Keep trays or seedbed evenly moist during the germination period of 7-10 days. Apply vegetable fertilisers two weeks after germination for healthier plants and a 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 and Tips:
Cut leaves any time for fresh use. For drying, pick leaves as flowers begin to open.
