Sow seeds in rows 20cm (8") apart direct into finely raked, moist, warm, weed-free soil, at a depth of 5cm (2") and cover the seed lightly with soil. Germination usually takes 7-14 days. Gradually thin seedlings to 5cm (2") apart. This variety does not require any canes for support. If growing over winter or in early spring, protective fleece or cloches will be required. Make successional sowings for continuous crops. Sowing to cropping 12-16 weeks.

HEALTH BENEFITS: Good source of vitamin B1 and folic acid. CULINARY TIPS: Steam gently to retain nutrient values.

Round seed (such as Douce Provence) provides nowhere for water to collect and rot the seed, so can be sown in winter, but wrinkled seed collects water, so can only be sown when the soil is drier in spring.
