Sowing
Sow from March to August, or September to overwinter, whenever the soil is vacant for at least 2 months, or where there is an area which requires increased fertility. Roughly dig over the soil removing any weeds. Lightly tread over the soil. Broadcast (scatter) the seed over the soil surface, carefully rake and water well in.
More Info
Allow the plants to develop for 50–60 days, usually just before flowering. Taller, stronger plants will draw up further minerals and will need chopping up prior to digging or rotavating in, but will provide increased bulky organic matter to the soil. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.
