How to grow
Regularly sow seed 1cm deep in pots or rows. Thin or transplant seedlings to 15-30cm apart. Choose fertile soil in a sunny site.
Water in dry weather for steady growth. Mulch to conserve moisture. Boost growth with a general organic fertiliser if needed.
Harvesting and use
Cut off outer leaves when big enough to use. You can also use younger seedling leaves when 10cm high (cutting to 2.5cm) and leaves will regrow several times.
