|Sow Inside (before transplanting)||
Seeds can be started in well-prepared soil outdoors or sown in pots filled with multi-purpose compost in early summer. Sow seeds thinly and cover lightly. Germination will usually take between 7-20 days. Sow every three or four weeks for a constant supply of leaves.
If growing for seed production, thin out to leave a 10cm (4in) gap among plants and make sure they are given a sunny site.
Leaves for early winter use can be obtained by sowing seeds in the autumn, then protecting seedlings with cloches or low polythene tunnels.
Keep soil and compost damp, but avoid over watering. Dry soil or compost can cause plants to bolt or flower prematurely.
Plants do not normally need feeding, but the occasional liquid feed of a balanced fertiliser can be used as a pick-me-up.
Weed regularly around plants grown for seed production and to prevent a check to growth.
Pick leaves when young and use either fresh or frozen.
