A definite must for any summer salad. Rocket Salad boasts delicious spicy dark green leaves which are very simple to grow. The best way to grow this seed is to sow successionally and can be used as a cut and come again variety.
WHEN TO SOW
April to August
Where to Sow
For baby leaves sow thinly from April to September, 0.5cm (1/4in) deep in rows 25-30cm (10-12in) apart. Sow seed in succession every 2-3 weeks for a continuous supply of fresh baby leaves.
What to do next
Keep soil moist and cut leaves from each plant leaving some leaves on each so they re-grow. You will often get 3-4 cuttings per plant.
May to October
Early sowings can be made in containers in a cold glasshouse. For micro salads sow every 7 days all year round in trays under glass or on a windowsill and harvest as seedlings to use as a garnish.
