Sow into trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down, water gently and keep moist through germination period. Transplant when large enough to handle.
Choose a sunny, sheltered position with well-drained soil. Add Yates Blood & Bone before planting and fertilise regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
Water regularly at base of plant to avoid fungal diseases. In exposed positions, if staking is likely to be required, this is best done when plants are young to avoid damaging root system.
