A little known but very useful salad plant, Rocket can be used raw in salads or cooked lightly when it makes a delicious spinach substitute. Late summer sowings of Rocket will carry on cropping into the winter if the plants are protected by cloches.
Sow seeds from April to July in any good fertile, well drained soil. Sow seeds thinly 6mm deep in drills spaced 45-60cm apart. When the seedlings are large enough to handle thin out to 23-30cm apart. Pick the young leaves as required over the whole row rather than just one or two plants as this would weaken them. As the flower buds appear pinch them out to prolong cropping.

Plant the seed
Growing vegetables from seeds is a great family activity that teaches children about the importance of sustainable living and the process of how plants grow. By involving kids in planting, watering, and taking care of the seeds, they learn valuable skills and gain appreciation for the food they eat.
Grow your own
Growing vegetables from seed offers numerous benefits such as access to a wider range of varieties, increased yields through succession planting, and the ability to experiment with plant breeding. In addition, you can make efficient use of space and timing in your garden by interplanting vegetables with different growing habits and maturity rates. So why not consider growing your vegetables and flowers from seed!
