Position

Sunny position

Sow

Choose a sunny, well-drained spot in the garden. Work in Yates Thrive Granular Complete Plant Food, and dig or rake soil to a fine crumbly surface. Form a groove about 1cm deep into the moist soil. Place the tape in the bottom of the groove and lightly cover the tape with moist soil, and keep well watered. Remember the tape can be cut to any length. Allow 30cm between rows. Thin young plants if necessary.

Care

Shoots are crisp early in the season and develop a stronger flavour when mature. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
