All Year Round
Where to Sow
Early sowings can be made into pots or trays under glass at 15°C, lightly covering the seed with a sprinkling of compost. Sowings can also be made at regular intervals into small pots of compost on a warm light windowsill all year round. Alternatively sow seed thinly April to May direct outdoors where they are to crop, 1cm (½in) deep, into finely-prepared soil.
What to do next
Glasshouse sowings can be pricked out into individual pots or trays and grown on under glass before gradually hardening off in a cold frame and planting out after all risk of frost has past. Outdoor sowings should be gradually thinned to an eventual spacing of 25cm (10in). Windowsill sowings can be harvested as required.
All year round
Sow at regular intercals for a continuous supply of fresh leaves. If not windowsill growing, move a few plants undercover in autumn for winter use.
