ROCKET GREEN BRIGADE ~ a classic salad rocket with gorgeous thick, dark green, slightly savoyed leaves 50 seeds SOW: at any time – protection is needed from late autumn to early spring. At these times it can be grown in a cool greenhouse, cold frame or under cloches. It is normally sown in situ but it can be planted out if sown in modules. This means that you can space the plants rather than thin them. GROW: keep watered, plants are ready to harvest after just 6 – 8 weeks. Picking frequently encourages new growth and discourages bolting in warmer weather. To treat it as cut and come again – cut leaving about 3cm above of stem above the ground, this will resprout for cutting again. EAT: Super in salads; you can also steam leaves, use them in sauces and stir fry them. Mature leaves are more peppery.
