Sow outdoors thinly where they are to crop 1.5cm deep, directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear within 14-21 days. Water well until plants are established. Cloche protection in autumn allows winter picking.
Sow indoors 0.5cm deep, thinly in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position.
Harvest: Pick the leaves as required (outdoor crops from May). Pick a few leaves from each plant so they regrow quickly.
