WHEN TO SOW

March to early September

Where to Sow

Sow seeds thinly in drills 2 cm (¾”) deep, covered with fine soil. Space rows 38cm (15in ) apart . Autumn sowings will overwinter and be ready to use the following year.

What to do next

Harvest and use immediately when they have reached your desired size, thinning the row as you go. Always ensure you do not clear all the plants from a row, this allows them to clump up and regenerate for cropping year after year.

Harvest

June onwards

Handy Tip

To produce the maximum green, do not allowed to flower. Keep well watered during dry weather and spread compost around the clumps in spring. Can be cropped throughout the year.

Nutritional Values

Contains Vitamin C and has antibacterial and antiseptic properties due to beneficial sulphur compounds. A good source of anti-oxidants , such as quercetin and anthocyanin.
