Planting Instruction
  • How To Sow: Choose a sheltered, well drained site in full sun. Sow these seeds in trays for subsequent transplanting or after frosts, sow direct where to grow. Sow seeds 2cm apart in rows 45cm apart and to a depth 2cm.
  • Seedling Care: Keeps seedbed or trays evenly moist during the germination period of 7-14 days. Apply McGregor's VegeMax 2 weeks after germination for healthier plants and maximum crop. Protect your herb garden from snails and slugs with McGregor's Snail and Slug bait and from White Butterfly with McGregor's Derris Dust.
  • Hints and Tips: Begin lifting alternate plants when golf ball size. This gives the remainder of the plants space to develop.
