Sowing Instructions

Outdoors – Sow thinly, April-July, in a seed bed, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Water well until plants are established. Transplant 45cm apart, when plants are about 10cm tall. Allow 60cm between rows. For ‘baby’ heads, grow in blocks with 30cm between plants. These can be sown in succession. Plant firmly and water well

Indoors – April-May, 0.5cm deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5cm apart to other trays, when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts) before planting out, May-June, into well-cultivated, fertile soil. Harvest: July-December.

Hints and Tips – Feed young plants with a slow release fertiliser, as fast release fertilisers can cause unevenness in the crop.

Seeds – Approx 125
