1 Cre­ate a healthy seedbed by rak­ing the soil to a fine tilth, re­mov­ing weeds and de­bris and then wa­ter­ing the ground. 2 Sow the seeds as thinly as pos­si­ble in curves and swathes to cre­ate an at­trac­tive, flow­ing, non­reg­i­mented look. 3 Rake a thin layer of soil over the seeds and wa­ter again. Pro­tect the area from cats and birds with a layer of twigs. 4 When the seedlings are large enough to han­dle, thin them, out to ap­prox­i­mately 8in (20cm) apart.
