Sow 1.8cm (¾") deep on a prepared seed bed from late April-July. Set out the plants in their final positions, 60cm (2') apart each way July-early August. Harvest mid October-March. It will live through very bad winter conditions.

Remove any discoloured foliage and apply a fertiliser in spring to boost new shoots. Can also use the seed as a healthy 'sprouting seed'. HEALTH BENEFITS: An important source of nutrients and in particular very useful in winter when fresh vegetables can be in short supply. Has high levels of vitamin A (For growth, healthy hair, skin, bones, teeth and eyes as well as resistance to respiratory infections), and C (Anti-ageing, wound healing, decreasing blood cholesterol and prevention of infections. Assists the body in absorbing iron). COOKING HINTS: Pick leaves when young and tender, lightly steam or stir-fry to conserve maximum nutrient value.
