Sow me outside in April and May. Choose where you want me to grow. I would like a nice sunny, well-drained spot. Rake the ground so it is nice and fine and remove any big stones. Make a small trench about 3mm deep. Sprinkle me along the trench and then cover me with soil. Water regularly. You will see me growing after about 21 days.

You will need to thin me out so there is 15cm between each plant.
