Product Description

Rocket runway seed by Mr. Fothergill’s. Perfect for tasty baby leaves. Attractive, with deeply serrated leaves like a wild rocket. Fast and vigorous growing, it can be sown close for baby leaf or harvested as mature plants. COOKING TIP: It has its own distinctive flavour which is tangy and peppery, but not bitter.

Useful Information: Easy to grow variety; Vitamin C; Suitable for contained gardens; Salad bar

Sow and grow: Outdoors: sow thinly, March-August, where they are to crop, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, moisture-retentive soil, which has already been watered. Allow 25 cm (10-inch) between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Water well and ensure soil remains moist to prevent plants running to seed. Thin out to 10 cm (4-inch) apart, using thinnings in salads. No thinning is necessary if only baby leaves are required. Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply. Take a few leaves from each plant and this will give up to four cuts, or pick whole, mature plants. Harvest: May-October.

Hints and tips: Easy to grow in well watered containers. Rocket can also be added to lettuce for a stronger-tasting salad.
