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 10cm apart in groups 2m apart to a depth of 2cm.
  • Seedling Care: Keep seedbed or trays evenly moist during the germination period of 10-14 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 store after harvest, put in a dry cool, airy place, making sure the fruit isn't touching.
