Sow seeds March to September, thinly in a well prepared seedbed in full sun or partial shade, 13mm deep in drills 30cm apart. Seeds can also be sown under glass from October to March for fresh leaves all year round.
Thin out seedlings to 15cm apart, or leave unthinned and pick as ‘baby leaves’.
Keep well watered to minimise bolting (running to seed) and pick young leaves regularly for best flavour.
