Sowing, Seeds, Planting Prefers a firm, rich fertile, well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Prepare the soil in early spring by digging over and adding plenty of well-rotted manure or garden compost. Apply lime to acidic soils to lessen the risk of clubroot. When transplanting seedlings, plant slightly deeper in the ground than they were previously growing, spacing plants 60cm (24in) apart. Water thoroughly after planting.
Care Tips Cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Remove yellowing leaves, mulch thickly and keep weed-free. This is a very disease-resistant plant and grows well in a large container pot.
