Organic Vegetable - Wild Rocket
Organic Wild Rocket
The leaves of Wild Rocket are much more serrated and darker than the standard Rocket, and it is packed full with a stronger peppery flavour.
Sow outdoors - February and March sowings direct into soil, in coldframe or under cloches. Later sowings in open ground. Sow in shallow drills about 1cm deep in rows 25cm apart. Thin out the seedlings as they grow to a final spacing of 15cm. Pick leaves regularly to prevent the plants quickly running to seed. Sow in small batches each month to ensure a continuous supply of fresh leaves.
