Sow direct into soil prepared by digging and raking at a depth of 50mm (2"), spacing the seeds 15-23cm (6-9") 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 up to 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. Sowing - cropping: 24 weeks. For earliest crops sow late October-November but can be sown right through to late January. It is advisable to pinch out tips of plants when first pods have set to deter blackfly. Packet sufficient for a double row of approximately 3.8m (12½').

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.
