Sow thinly direct into a finely raked, weed-free seedbed at a depth of 1.3cm (½"). Germination 7-14 days. Transplant when large enough to handle allowing 60cm (24") between plants each way. Alternatively, seeds can be started off in small pots or modules in a cold frame or cold greenhouse. Plants grow best in a bed that has been manured the autumn before and the ground should be firmed after planting to ensure firm buttons. Pick sprouts from the bottom of the plant and work your way upwards.
