From seed

Choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil.

Enrich soil.

Sow seed direct, planting them in clumps of 2-3 seeds 20cm apart.

Cover with seed raising mix.

Water regularly.

Once seedlings emerge, thin seedlings and feed weekly with plant food.

Ready to harvest

Harvest by snipping or pulling leaves at soil level - this will also help encourage leafier growth.
