Planting Instruction
  • How To Sow: Choose a well drained site in full sun. Best sown into seed trays for subsequent transplanting or, after frosts, sow direct where to grow in a well prepared seedbed. Sprinkle seeds 1cm apart and to a depth of 5mm. Later, transplant to 10cm apart.
  • Seedling Care: Keep seedbed or trays evenly moist during the germination period of 14-21 days. Apply McGregor's VegeMax 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: To produce shanks with more white, form a trench 10cm deep. Plant seedlings in the bottom of the trench. Over time the trench fills in creating longer shanks.
