Sun/ Shade:  Sun to Part Shade

A fantastic and easy salad crop. Quicker and more vigorous to grow than other salad rockets with the traditional wild rocket, peppery taste.

Sow April- August. Sow thinly in a prepared seed bed 0.5cm deep in rows 25-30cm  apart. Keep soil moist . Sow seed in succession every 2-3 weeks for a continuous supply of fresh young leaves.

If you don't have a veggie patch or have limited space these can be grown very effectively in pots. You may find this more convenient so you can have them close to the house for easy picking

Thin seedlings to 10cm (4in) apart when large enough to handle. Cut leaves from each plant leaving some leaves on each so they re-grow. You will often get 3-4 cuttings per plant.
