Harvesting: May to October

How To Grow Wild Rocket From Seed: Sow seeds evenly from April to September in compost or prepared ground. Thin as required to a spacing 15cm for mature plants. You can pick the leaves of young plants as soon as they are ready, but if you let some plants mature, the leaves will get quite large and more peppery. Succession sow throughout the season.

Can be started earlier inside or in a greenhouse.

Water well in dry spells or hot weather to prevent plants 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.
