Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow under cover in succession, every 2-3 weeks, in gutters February-September, 3cm (1in) apart for planting out March-October. Direct sow from April, thinly in a 15cm (6in) strip. Cover lightly with 1.5cm (1/2in) of fine soil. Prefers a rich, well-drained soil in full sun. Ideal for growning in containers.
Care Tips Keep well watered to prevent roots from splitting. Protect early and late sowings with cloches or grow in a greenhouse.
Storing Separate the leaves from the bulbs, and store both in the fridge in plastic bags, the bulbs will keep for 3-4 days and the leaves for about 48 hours.
Harvesting March - October, 4-6 weeks from sowing.
Cooking Notes To eat raw, wash the roots and have them with sea salt. You can also eat the leaves - they have a good peppery flavour and make a punchy addition to any mixed leaf salad. Or, use in a stir fry or in a pasta sauce when the leaves get a little too big.
