Description

Rocket is an easy to grow salad crop. This variety has the vigour of salad rocket with the wild rocket flavour; it adds a delicious spicy, peppery punch to salads. The younger leaves are milder, more tender and delicately flavoured. Older leaves can also be lightly cooked as a spinach substitute; added to sauces, stir-fried or sautéed in olive oil. The flowers are edible too. It has excellent mildew resistance. Rocket likes a sunny site with rich, fertile, well-drained soil. It also grows well in containers.

Sowing Advice

Sow direct outdoors from April to early September, scattering the seeds thinly along a drill, 0.5–1cm (¼–½in) deep. If sowing several rows, space them 15cm (6in) apart. Thin out the seedlings to 15cm (6in) apart when they’re large enough to handle, and use the thinnings in salads. For a continuous supply of leaves, sow small batches every two to three weeks.
