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 5cm apart in rows 60cm apart and to a depth of 1cm
  • Seedling Care: Keep seedbed evenly moist during the germination period of 14-21 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: Successive sowings provide an unlimited supply. When outer leaves are large enough, snap off at the base of the plant.
