Seed Count - 500
When to sow
March to April
Where to sow
Sow the seeds thinly in a well prepared seed bed in shallow drills 1.5cm (3/4") 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.
