When to sow
All year round
Where to Sow
Sow seed direct outside in March to July into shallow seed drills. Alternatively make sowings at two to three week intervals indoors on a light windowsill all year round. Sow seeds thinly 0.5cm (¼in) deep, in small pots of moist compost at a temperature of 15-20°C.
What to do next
Direct sown seedlings can be thinned to 30cm (12in) apart and harvested from May as required . Indoor crops can be harvested all year round. Pick a few leaves, as required, from each plant so that they regrow quickly. Keep well watered during hot weather.
All year round
Grow on a light windowsill out of direct sunlight. If sowing direct outdoors, choose a site that is shaded from the midday sun.
A good source of Vitamin C and beta-carotene, along with magnesium, potassium, calcium and many other vitamins including Vitamin B.
