Sow in Late Summer to early Winter. Spring too in cool regions.
Sow thinly, but firmly, 5mm (¼in) deep in a well prepared garden bed which has already been watered. Plant in rows 45cm
apart. Seedlings usually appear in 7-10 days.
Thin out to 30cm between plants when seedlings are about 10cm tall. Harvest 8-10 weeks from sowing. Pick leaves as required or
harvest the whole plant.
