I sowed two double rows of these, with the seeds 15cm apart and the double row spaced about 60cm apart. This means I can reach all the plants from the edge of the bed without standing on the soil, but will also have a path down the middle for later in the year to make weeding and harvesting easier. I grow them under a cloche for as long as I can - normally until the soil becomes a bit too dry. But this year the soil is so very wet, I think they will be happy under here until they reach the top of the cloche and need more room. There's a bit of space left under the cloche at the end of the bed so I think I'll do an early sowing of peas in this warm soil soon.
