Sowing instructions: Sow outside in May, seeds are very small, sow no deeper than 1.5 mm and cover with fine compost. Seeds can also be sown indoors and planted out in small clumps.
Growing instructions:Thin plants to 30cm (12in) apart, in rows 45cm (18in) apart. Humidity, periods of excessive rain, or over-watering leads to root rot, which eventually kills the plant. To avoid it, amend your soil to ensure better drainage or grow in raise beds. If too much humidity is a problem, encourage good air circulation by giving your plants plenty of room to spread.
Harvesting:  You can begin harvesting when the plant is about 20cm (8in) high.The flavour is most intense just before the plant blooms. Frequent harvests will produce a bushier plant and keeps foliage succulent. It's a good idea to cut plants back to about 15cm (6in) at least twice during the growing season, leaving ample growth in autumn to sustain the plant through winter
