Planting Instruction
  • How To Sow: Choose a well drained site in full sun. Sow these seeds in trays for subsequent transplanting or, after frosts sow direct where to grow. Sow seeds 3cm apart, in rows 60cm apart and to a depth of 5mm.
  • Seedling Care: Keep 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 a 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: Harvest before the florets start to open and turn yellow. Cut just below the point where the stems begin to separate.
