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 in a well prepared seedbed. Sow seeds 2cm apart and to a depth of 1cm
  • Seedling Care: Keep trays or seedbed evenly moist during the germination period of 5-8 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: Best grown in cooler weather. Old leaves will have a stonger flavour. Younger leaves are better suited to salads and mesclun mixes, where they add a spicy edge.
  • Our seeds are not treated with Neonicitinoids
