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 directly in a well prepared seedbed. Sow seeds 3 cm apart, in rows 60 cm apart and to a depth of 5 mm. Seedling Care: Keep the seedbed or trays evenly moist during the germination period of 7-14 days. Apply vegetable fertiliser two weeks after germination for healthier plants and maximum crop. Protect your seedlings from slugs, snails and insect pests; go to mcgregors.co.nz for appropriate plant health and pest control products.Hints and Tips: Harvest before the florets start to open and turn yellow. Cut just below the point where the stems begin to separate. Our seeds are not treated with Neonicotinoids
