Herb Rocket Discovery

  • Popular, easy to grow salad leaf, widely used in salads and sandwiches for its unique aromatic taste. Rocket Discovery can also be included in pizza and pasta dishes, or steamed as a spinach substitute. Sow in succession and pick leaves as required.

  • Sow seeds from March to September outdoors, or all year on a windowsill. Sow seeds thinly, 13mm (½in) deep in drills 37cm (15in) apart in soil that has been raked to a fine tilth. Can also be sown in pots of good seed compost on the windowsill or in containers on the patio. Sow successionally for fresh leaves virtually all year round.

  • When large enough to handle thin seedlings to 15cm (6in) apart. Prefers any well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade.

  • Pick regularly as tender ‘salad leaves’. Must be kept well watered during hot, dry weather or leaves will be hot and inedible and likely to bolt (run to seed).
