How To Grow
- Prepare soil by removing weeds and raking the surface to break up large clumps.
- Sow seeds by scattering them relatively thickly over soil.
- Rake seeds in or cover with well-rotted animal manure or compost.
- Dig plants in before they set seed. Mow or shred larger plants prior to digging in, and turn small plants into the ground using a garden fork.
- Remove any woody debris to the compost heap.
- Distribute the organic matter evenly through the top layer of soil so that it can quickly decompose.
- Allow around six weeks between digging in green manure and planting a new crop.
