Wild Rocket Seeds

How To Grow

Sowing/Planting Seed
 

  • Can be grown indoors or outdoors using containers  (e.g. empty tin (being careful if sharp edges on tin), a yoghurt/plastic container or similar with holes punched in the bottom for drainage) in fertile soil (e.g. compost), although Wild Rocket is less sensitive to soil conditions. 

  • Sow seeds approx. 1cm deep, sprinkle seed in the hole and cover with a small amount of soil

  • (Can also be sown directly in the soil outdoors. If sowing outdoors directly in soil, thin seedlings to allow 5 – 10cm between seedlings when seedlings are hardy. Allow 25cm between rows if sowing more than one row outdoors.)

  • Keep the soil weed free, ensuring you don’t damage plant in the process.

  • Ensure soil remains moist, don’t allow to dry out. 

  • To encourage growth and deter pests/slugs, feed every 4 weeks or so with organic fertiliser (e.g. dried milled seaweed fertiliser, sachets available on sow.ie)
