These fast growing cut-and-come-again rocket leaves add a peppery tang to salads and cooking. Rich in vitamins C, E, B and K this leafy green can be sowed and harvested all summer.
Sow small batches of rocket seeds each fortnight from April to June to enjoy a steady supply of leaves until September. Water frequently while in full growth to keep leaves tender.
A hugely versatile perennial plant, there’s nothing better than picking a few fresh mint leaves for a refreshing cup of tea, or to liven up your mojito. A great partner for peas, beans, carrots, beetroot, new potatoes and spinach, it’s useful in cooking too.
Mint prefers rich, moist soil and semi-shade. We recommend sowing your mint seeds in pots as it’s extremely vigorous.
Suitable for growing in gardens, containers or on window sills, basil goes beautifully with tomato, cheese, salads and pizzas. An excellent source of vitamin K, manganese, iron, vitamin A, and vitamin C, it also provides calcium.
Sow these basil bush seeds directly outdoors from April-May. This variety prefers a dryish position, and develops more flavour and scent when grown in poorish soils.
Parsley seeds – Plain Leaved 2
Also known as ‘French Parsley’, this vigorously growing variety is extensively used on the continent because of its excellent flavour.

Sow these plain leaved parsley seeds outdoors from March-July. It can take up to 21 days for the seeds to germinate, but your first crops should be ready in about 12-14 weeks.
