Crops 12-16 weeks from sowing. F1 hybrids last longer in good condition than ordinary types. In a sunny spot sow seed thinly in drills (straight shallow grooves) made 30cm (12") apart and cover with about 1.25cm (½") of soil. Thin resulting seedlings to 5–7cm (2–3") apart. Alternatively for raised beds you can sow in small blocks with a spacing of 5–7cm each way which is more space efficient. Sow bolt-resistant varieties March-April and other varieties late April to July, for continuous cropping from June-December! Row length per pack: 7.5m (25'). Harvest June-December.
