WHEN TO SOW
All the year round
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
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.
All year round
Early autumn and winter sowings can be made in containers in a cold glasshouse. Or if short of space during the year, sow seeds thinly into containers on a sunny patio.
