The seeds simply germinate through the tape in position.
- Sow Apr ? Jun direct to the growing position.
- Prepare the soil in your chosen growing location, removing any weeds and raking to a fine tilth.
- Make a shallow drill in the soil and simply roll out the tape in the groove. Tape can be cut to suit row length.

- The seed is pre-spaced on the tape; however, you may need to do a small amount of thinning on some varieties as they develop depending on the germination rate achieved.
