Sow and grow indoors for all year round crops. Sow 0.5cm (¼") deep, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. For earlier outdoor crops, sow indoors March-May. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into warm, well-drained soil, 20cm (8") apart, during May-June. Alternatively, plants can be grown on a light windowsill.
Sow outdoors March-May for ease, where they are to crop, 0.5cm (¼") deep, directly into finely-prepared, warm, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 20cm (8") apart. Harvest: by cutting leaves once they reach 15cm (6") tall (outdoor crops from June). Pick a few leaves from each plant so they regrow quickly.
The mild, garlic flavour is ideal in salads, or finely chopped in cream cheese. Flower petals, scattered lightly over salads, add colour and flavour.
Great for small space or container gardens.
