- Perfect for tasty baby leaves.
- Attractive, with deeply serrated leaves like a wild rocket. Fast and vigorous growing, it can be sown close for baby leaf or harvested as mature plants. COOKING TIP: It has its own distinctive flavour which is tangy and peppery, but not bitter.
Sow & Grow: Outdoors: sow thinly, March-August, where they are to crop, 0.5cm (¼") deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, moisture-retentive soil, which has already been watered. Allow 25cm (10") between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Water well and ensure soil remains moist to prevent plants running to seed. Thin out to 10cm (4") apart, using thinnings in salads. No thinning is necessary if only baby leaves are required. Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply. Take a few leaves from each plant and this will give up to four cuts, or pick whole, mature plants. Harvest: May-October.
