SOWING GUIDELINES

It is essential to have a weed-free seed-bed before sowing as seedling vigour is low and competition against weeds is poor.  Seed can be sown at all times of the year as long as moisture from either rainfall or irrigation is available.  Germination can be expected within 7 to14 days in autumn and spring, but it may take up to 60 days in winter. Germination during the warmer months is entirely driven by soil moisture levels with inadequate moisture causing a substantial delay in germination.
