Plant Out May to June



Where to Sow


Sow seeds  0.5cm (¼") deep, in small trays of compost and lightly cover the seeds with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite, and place at a  temperature of 15-20°C. Alternatively sow direct outside in April and May into shallow seed drills.   


What to do next 


Prick out seedlings individually to 7cm (3") pots, once large enough to handle. Grow on in cooler conditions , then gradually harden off plants in a cold frame before planting out after risk of frost has passed. Transplant to final positions 30cm (12in) apart or into larger containers, or grow a few in pots on a light windowsill all year round. Direct sown seedlings can be thinned to 15-30cm (6-12in) apart and harvested as required.

 

HARVEST  Pick leaves when dry and the sun is not too strong . Add to cooking only minutes before use to retain the strength of flavour.


Harvest All year round
