|When to Sow||
February to June or late August/September for overwintering.
|How to Sow:||Sow seed in seed trays/modules & just cover lightly with compost. Water carefully. Germination takes between 10-21 days at 21C. When seedlings large enough transplant into 7.5cm pots and grow on in cooler conditions. Finally plant outside when plant has just begun to fill the pot, 30cm apart, after a period of 'hardening off'. Late summer sowings do best in pots that can be kept inside in winter. The seeds can also be sown 8 seeds per module and planted out in a clump, 20cm apart or in a pot. The stems will just be thinner but still full of flavour.|
Keep well watered. Regularly pick outside leaves to ensure new fresh growth.
|Harvest:||April November (August September sowings can sometimes be cropping through the early winter months if undercover).|
