There is nothing quite like growing your own fresh herbs to add to your cooked dishes and salads.

The leaves of Wile Rocket are much more serrated and darker than the standard Rocket and it is packed full with a stronger peppery flavour.

 

 

 

WHEN TO SOW

April to August

 

Where to Sow

For baby leaves sow thinly from April to September, 0.5cm (1/4in) deep in rows 25-30cm (10-12in) apart. Sow seed in succession every 2-3 weeks for a continuous supply of fresh baby leaves.

 

What to do next

Keep soil moist and cut leaves from each plant leaving some leaves on each so they re-grow. You will often get 3-4 cuttings per plant.

 

MATURITY

May to October

 

Handy Tip

Early sowings can be made in containers in a cold glasshouse. For micro salads sow every 7 days all year round in trays under glass or on a windowsill and harvest as seedlings to use as a garnish.

 

Nutritional Values

Rich in antioxidants.
