Rocket - Wild Trizia
Wild Trizia is fast growing with full-flavoured, attractive serrated leaves that can be ready in as little as 5 weeks. The plants are slow to bolt, have downy mildew tolerance and can be grown under cover for autumn-winter crops.
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.
