Cultural Information :-
Best sown Late March to Mid-May or from early August to Mid-September
Select a sunny weed free site. Use Organic Fertiliser.
Sprinkle seed thinly onto a prepared seed bed, lightly rake in with a spring tined rake, firm with feet or roller. Water thoroughly with a fine sprayed hose or watering can. Keep the area well watered and weed free until seedlings are established. As the seedlings grow some thinning out will be required with as little root disturbance as possible, use the area as a source of plant material by transplanting the thinning's to other parts of the garden.
Maintenance of seed bed for the following year :-
During late August to mid September after all the seed has been shed, clear away the finished plants and remove any grass or weeds. Vigorously rake the surface of the soil to make a seed bed. Firm the soil and water thoroughly.
Keep the area well watered and free from grass and weeds until the seedlings establish.
