- Sow from March under cover. Best grown in containers in the glasshouse or a sunny windowsill but can be planted outside from June when nights are warm, in a sheltered position in full sun.
Delicious in salads, dressings and infused in boiling water as a tisane. More of us should grow this for summer harvest and with stem ends seared for 10 seconds, it makes a lovely foliage filler for the vase.
Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.
Grows well in a container, keep re-potting into a slightly larger pot when roots start to show through the drainage holes at the bottom. Water plants in the morning if possible. Keep plants bushy by pinching the tips and removing any flowers.
