Not too difficult to grow
Sow seed 1cm deep in a seedbed. Transplant seedlings when 20cm tall at 15-30cm apart, trimming leaf-tips & roots and dropping into 15cm deep holes.
Don’t fill planting holes with soil. Pull soil around stems when plants are larger to further exclude light (blanch).
Plants can be lifted when still quite small for an extended harvest period. Lift remaining plants during winter. Loosen with a fork before lifting.
