How To Grow Rocket From Seed: Sow the seeds evenly in shallow drills. When the seedlings establish, thin to leave a spacing of 2cm between plants. The thinnings can be eaten. You can pick the leaves of young plants as soon as they are ready. Succession sow throughout the season for a constant supply.

Can be started earlier or later under protection.

Water well in dry spells or hot weather to prevent plants from running to seed. You can also grow Rocket in large pots and other containers. Just sprinkle some seed onto good quality compost and keep watered.
