sow thinly, April-August, where they are to crop, 5 mm deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, moisture-retentive soil, which has already been watered. Allow 25 cm between rows.
Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days.
Water well and ensure soil remains moist to prevent plants running to seed. Thin out to 10 cm apart, using thinnings in salads. No thinning is necessary if only baby leaves are required.
