- Direct sow regularly (little and often) every 4-6 weeks from August to April, in all but the coldest, wettest weeks, in blocks or lines. Crops best in cold, damp weather, not hot and dry. Can also be sown under cover in spring and autumn.
Slower to bolt than all other forms. You can cook few Oriental meals without it and we eat the flowers and green seeds in salads.
Sow little and often in the early spring and autumn, not in the hot, dry months of summer. We picked this right through the winter too last year, come frost, rain or even snow, it kept going. Highly recommended for cold weather sowing.
Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.
Pick regularly as this bolts quickly. Keep soil and compost damp, but avoid overwatering.
