When to sow

March to April
Where to sow

Sow the seeds thinly in a well prepared seed bed in shallow drills 2cm (1") deep in short rows. Can also be sown earlier in trays under glass for exhibition work.

What to do next

Thin seedlings as they grow to 4-5cm   (3") apart. When the seedlings are about the thickness of a pencil, they should be lifted and transplanted. Make a hole 15cm (6") deep with a rod, trim off the ends of roots and leaves, drop into hole and fill with water. Do not fill the hole with soil.
