Sow and Plant
In frost areas sow early spring under cover. Plant out early summer. In frost free areas, sow directly or transplant in spring.
Our Garden Planner can produce a personalised calendar of when to sow, plant and harvest for your area.
Unless using a self-blanching type, will need to be planted in trenches, then tubes wrapped round in mid summer and/or earthed up with soil. Keep moist during dry weather.
Can cut frequently if required. In any case harvest before the first frost in autumn.
