Sow direct into soil prepared by digging and raking at a depth of 5cm (2”), spacing the seeds 20cm (8") apart. Best sown alternately in double rows allowing 23cm (9") between the two lines forming each row. Allow 60-90cm (24-36") between further rows. Germination 7-21 days. Can also be sown in pots or trays of compost on a windowsill or in a greenhouse for eventual planting outside. Grows best in a sheltered site, but not shaded, in well drained soil. Pinching out tips helps to prevent attacks of blackfly. Water well during dry weather to aid flower setting and bean formation. Sowing to Cropping: 14 weeks.

Ideal for beds and borders. Prefers full sun but grows well in sun or shade. HEALTH BENEFITS: A source of vitamins A, C and E, plus protein and fibre. CULINARY TIPS: Cook pinched-out tips as a tasty alternative to spinach.
