Cultural Information :-
Sow either late March to early May or late August to mid September in a sunny weed free site with fertile soil. Balanced organic or inorganic fertiliser can be used both before and after sowing.
Cultivate the ground to prepare the finest seed bed possible. If necessary tread or roll to get a firm seed bed. Sprinkle the seed thinly and evenly onto the bed. Lightly rake in with a spring tined rake, firm the soil.
Keep the seedlings, young plants well-watered. Thin as required using thinnings as a source for plant material for other areas of the garden. Ensure the site is kept free of unwanted plants and grass.
