Sowing Instructions

Sow outdoors, April to August.
Thinly where they are to crop, 0.5cm (0.25") deep directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Delay sowing if soil is still cold. Allow 25cm (10") between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear within 7-21 days. Thin seedlings to 45cm (18") apart. Water well and ensure soil remains moist to prevent plants from running to seed. Thin out to 10cm (4") apart, using thinnings in salads. No thinning is necessary if only baby leaves are required. Regular sowings made every 2 to 3 weeks will ensure a continuous supply. Take a few leaves from each plant and this will give up to 4 cuts or pick whole mature plants. Cloche protection in autumn will extend the harvest period.
