Rocket - Wild
This is an alternative to the usual 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.
Sow seeds from April to July. Sow seeds thinly, 1cm deep in drills 30cm apart in soil that has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to 23-30cm 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.
