Now tie this end of the string to the second stick and then twirl it to the desired length. Both posts planted at both sides and twill towards will create a perfectly straight line made famous. By Charles doubting the technique of multi sowing allows you to grow more plants in less space, and it also means that you need less compost to get them growing.
For example, beetroot, radish and turnips can be sown four to five seeds to a module.
