Planting Instruction
  • How To Sow: Choose a sheltered, well drained site in full sun. Sow directly where to grow in a warm, well prepared seedbed after all danger of frost has passed. Sow seeds 15cm apart in rows 60cm apart. Cover to a depth of 3cm.
  • Seedling Care: Keep seedbed or trays evenly moist during the germination period of 7-14 days. The soil temperature must be warm at all times. Apply McGregor's FruitMax 2 weeks after germination for healthier plans and a maximum crop. Protect your vege garden from snails and slugs with McGregor's Snail and Slug bait and from White Butterfly with McGregor's Derris Dust.
  • Hints and Tips: Pick regularly when pods are young to obtain over 6 weeks continual cropping. Sow regularly througout the season for continuous supply. Dried borlotti can be soaked overnight and then simmered under water or stock with vegetables and/or meats.
