Sow indoors for surest results, between February and April, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or on a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-42 days. Plant out, when large enough to handle, to individual pots. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually get your young plants used to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, from July to October, 30 cm (12-inches) apart. Or, sow outdoors, from April to July, in a seed bed, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Keep moist and weed free. Thin the seedlings to 5 cm (2-inches) apart, before planting out to their flowering position in autumn. Enjoy the flowers from July to August, the following year.

Hints and Tips: The scent is at its strongest from dusk until dawn, so plant where it can be fully enjoyed.

    I have been asked by the supplier to post a review about these seeds. It’s hard to get excited about a packet of seeds. However having wanted some sweet rocket these were ordered from an Amazon supplier. Having received them about half the packet were placed into seedling trays with potting compost and then placed into a propagator and placed on a window sill. Since then the seeds have germinated and have little green shoots. They will be potted on in due course.
