Easy to grow - at most times of the year - salad rocket is one of the first leafy greens to enter our veggie patches. A mildly spicy flavour, that increases in pungency as it shoots its flower heads, it can be productive for a number of months through the flowering process. Being part of the brassica family it is also a favoured crop for the white cabbage moth, however they are not as vivacious towards this variety as some others.

Soil: Prepare with compost and well-rotted manure. Fresh manure has a tendency to burn younger rocket seedlings, so ensure what you apply is mellowed out or leave to settle for 1-2 weeks before planting.

How to Plant: Use a free draining soil well integrated with compost or good quality potting mix when growing in pots. Sow seeds directly into the patch during the warmer periods of autumn and spring, otherwise propagate in a seed tray and transplant once condition become suitable. Cut flower heads to help promote new growth. A reliable self seeder.

Spacing: 20cm

Depth: 0.5-1cm

What to plant in: Pot / Wall Garden / Ground

Companion Plants: Tomato, Spring Onions

Approximate no. of seeds: 150
