Rocket - Sky Rocket
Sky Rocket has fast growing, attractive leaves and is slow to bolt. Great for adding bite to salads and ideal for growing in pots.
Sow outdoors thinly, from March to September, where they are to crop, 2.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Allow 25cm between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Keep moist. Harvest unthinned as baby leaves, or thin to 10cm apart for mature plants. Or, sow indoors, from October to March, to grow in a tunnel or greenhouse. Sow into cells in trays of compost in gentle warmth. Transplant to borders or large pots when approx. 7.5cm tall. Keep moist. Harvest all year round.
