How to Plant: Sow directly into the patch at a depth of 1cm. It is a good idea to soak the seeds in water overnight prior to planting to help with germination. Once the seeds have germinated you will need to thin out the seedlings to allow adequate space for the rest to grow.

Depth: 1cm

What to plant in: Pot / Wall Garden / Ground

Companion Plants: Onions

Approximate no. of seeds: 60

Note: Seeds are sourced locally and in small batches to ensure they remain at their maximum viability for germination. Seeds viable for 5+ years when stored correctly in a cool, dry, dark place.
