Sow and grow: Outdoors: sow thinly March-September, where they are to crop, 2.5 cm (1-inch) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30 cm (1-feet) between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Water well and ensure soil remains moist to prevent plants running to seed. Harvest: May-October. Harvest unthinned as baby leaves. Take a few from each plant, allowing them to regrow for two or three more pickings. Or thin to 15 cm (6-inch) apart to produce mature leaves.
Hints and tips: Use leaves sparingly in salads. Traditionally, they are also added as flavouring in thick soups and used to make a sharp sauce.
Care and Cultivation: Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply.
