WHEN TO SOW

April to August. 

WHERE TO SOW

Sow thinly in a prepared seed bed 0.5cm (1/4in) deep in rows 25-30cm (10-12in) apart. Keep soil moist. Sow seed in succession every 2-3 weeks for a continuous supply of fresh young leaves. 

WHAT TO DO NEXT 

Thin seedlings to 10cm (4in) apart when large enough to handle. Cut leaves from each plant leaving some leaves on each so they re-grow. You will often get 3-4 cuttings per plant. 

HARVEST 

May to October. 

HANDY TIP 

Early sowings can be made in containers in a cold glasshouse from February. Or if short of space during the year, sow seeds thinly into containers on a sunny patio. Always cut leaves rather than pull off.
