Rocket wild - 1000 seeds

A popular alternative to regular Rocket, with deep green, serrated foliage that makes an attractive garnish. Wild Rocket has a stronger flavour than standard Rocket, and the young leaves can be picked in succession and are perfect for salads. Easy to grow. Height 15-20cm (6-8in), prostrate habit.

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible

Sow seeds from April to July. Sow seeds thinly, 1cm (0.5in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart in soil that has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to 23-30cm (9-12in) apart.

Harvest young leaves as required, picking only a few from each plant. Sowings made in late summer will carry on cropping into winter if given protection by cloches.

Prefers moist, well drained soil in full sun.
