Sowing Months Harvest Months
Where to sow: Outdoors in a seed bed for transplanting later on.
Preparation: Prepare the soil by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones.
Sowing: Sow at 4 week intervals from March to June. Sow thinly, 1cm (1/2in) deep and cover lightly with soil. Keep watered during dry weather.
Growing: Transplant seedlings to their final position when they have 4-5 leaves and are large enough to handle, about 5 weeks from sowing. Allow a minimum of 60cm (2ft) between plants and 75cm (30in) between rows. Firm in well and water regularly.
Harvest before the flowers open and when shoots are around 10cm (4in) long. Regular picking will encourage more shoots. Don't remove the large leaves as these will protect the next batch of developing shoots. Place some fine mesh netting over the plants to prevent against root fly, aphid and Cabbage caterpillar damage.
