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 5 cm apart, in rows 60 cm apart and to a depth of 1 cm.
  • Seedling Care: Keep the seedbed evenly moist during the germination period of 14-21 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 for appropriate plant health and pest control products.
  • Hints and Tips: Successive sowings provide a continuous supply. When outer leaves are large enough, snap off at the base of the plant.
  • Our seeds are not treated with Neonicotinoids.
  • These seeds are not pasteurized.
