Number of seeds per packet: 180.
A tried and tested old favourite with superb garden performance and long, thick, quality stems.
Impressive winter hardiness, providing bumper crops of tasty stems.
Sow March to April when the soil is warm.
Prepare the soil well by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones.
Make 1cm drills (channels) in the soil spaced 30-45cm apart. Separate the seed tapes at the perforation and if necessary cut to the desired length. Comes with seed tape.
Water the open drill so that the seed tape sticks to the soil well. Place the seed tape in the seed drill along each row. Cover seed tapes and gently firm the soil down using the back of a rake.
Water regularly and keep moist but not over wet.
Draw up the soil around the stems as they develop to help them whiten.
Lift as required when stems are thick.
Harvest: September, October, November, December, January.
Remember to label your plants .
