Hints & Tips Protect seedlings from birds with twigs or bird scarers. Water well during dry spells. Ideal for deep freezing.
Care & Cultivation Early sowings benefit from frost protection. Stick or twigs, placed either side of the row for support, will make picking easier. Water well until plants are established. Successional sowings will ensure a continuous supply and long harvest. Pick regularly for the best yields.
