What to do on arrival

On arrival open the packages immediately. You may notice a little compost spillage due to movement in the post, and occasionally an odd yellow leaf may appear and fall off due to the plants being in a box for a short period, but this is nothing to worry about. If there is any significant damage please contact us immediately. Stand the plants upright and give a little water as required. After a couple of hours the plants will have recovered from the journey and will be ok to plant as directed below.

Soil Preparation

Always prepare your soil well prior to planting by adding a general fertiliser and rake well into the soil. If growing in containers, plant into a good quality potting compost and feed throughout the growing season to keep plants healthy and producing a tasty crop over a longer period.

Harvest Period

February to April the following year.

Planting Distance

60cm (24") between plants in rows spaced 90cm (3ft) apart.

Growing Instructions

Water well after planting into a rich fertile soil. Plants may benefit from being grown under some bird protection netting. Pick out the central spear first to encourage lots of side shoots. Keep picking regularly whilst young to prolong harvest period.
