Lovely spicy evening perfume

Sweet Rocket

Sweet rocket features loose mauve and white spikes, which have a lovely evening fragrance. This hardy perennial reaches the height of 60cm.

Sow indoors for surest results, from February to April, 0.5cm deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse, or on a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 21-42 days. Transplant, when large enough to handle, to individual pots. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, from July to October, 30cm apart. Or, sow outdoors, from April to July, in a seed bed, 0.5cm deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Keep moist and weed free. Thin seedlings to 5cm apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn. Flowers from July to August, the following year.
