Easy to grow, it is quick to mature, providing an abundance of tangy, spicy leaves. Use as a main ingredient in mixed green salads and it's a must in Italian dishes.
Seed Count: Approx. 1000
Outdoors: sow thinly, April-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.
