How to grow:
Sow seeds in deep pots thickly under cover in February or sow in beds outside March/April. Once they’re about 7-8″ tall separate them out gently and drop into holes made with a 1″ diameter stick/dibbler of about 6″ deep and 14″ apart. Water in well filling up the hole you made for each one.
