Sow in well cultivated soil and sunny position. Separate the strips and roll out into prepared rows that are 5mm (1/4”) deep and 45cm (18”) apart. Cover with soil and keep moist. Thin seedlings to 45cm (18”) apart when large enough to handle. Harvest when centre heads are well formed, just before the flower heads open. As spears are cut, others will appear in a few weeks. Seedlings emerge 7-14 days.
