Rich, fertile, moisture retentive soil with plenty of well-rotted manure or compost incorporated is important to produce an abundance of tasty leaves and to prevent bolting (running to seed). For summer crops, a position shaded from the sun for at least part of the day is preferred. Avoid sowing during the hottest month of July. For outdoor sowings, sow from March to June, earlier sowings under glass or cloches, and mid August and September. Sowings in pots on the windowsill can be done throughout the year. Sow seeds thinly, 13mm deep, in broad drills and in succession to allow for continuous cropping and suppression of weeds. This crop is ideal for intercropping between long standing crops.

During warm dry spells watering may be necessary twice a day, morning and evening.

Harvest when leaves are still lush and tender, best done in the early morning when still cool.
