How to Sow:

  • Sow thinly in a prepared seed bed 0.5cm (1/4”) deep in rows 25-30cm (10-12”) apart.
  • Keep soil moist.
  • Sow in succession every 2-3 weeks for a continuous supply of fresh young leaves.
  • Keep soil moist and cut leaves from each plant leaving some leaves on each so they re-grow. You will often get 3-4 cuttings per plant.
  • Early autumn and winter sowings can be made in containers in a cold glasshouse. If short on space during the year, sow seeds thinly into containers on a sunny patio.
