Rocket
Rocket is easy to grow, indoors or out.
It can be sown almost all year round.
Grow it to produce young leaves, which
can be picked after only 4 weeks.
Sow once a month for a regular supply.

Rocket gives a peppery zing to salads.
It can also be used to make pesto sauce,
and in soups. Add the leaves to pizzas
just before eating.
Suggested pot size: A wide pot or tray, around 10-15cm deep.

Rocket

Any variety of rocket can be grown this way.
Some to try:
‘Rucola’
‘Sky Rocket’
‘Voyager’

Plant

Growing tips

1.	 Fill container with moist compost and firm down gently.
2.	 Sprinkle seed evenly over the surface, 2-3cm apart.
3.	 Cover with a 0.5-1cm layer of compost.
4.	 Water well.

Compost to use:
Multipurpose, organic and peat- free.

1.	
Gently pull out excess seedlings,
leaving the rest about 5cm apart.
2.	 You can eat the ones pulled out.

Grow

Eat

Grow it outdoors in a light, airy spot,
or on a cool windowsill.
Rocket does best in cooler weather.
In summer keep pots in light shade.

Watering tips:
Water regularly, particularly hot
weather. Use a watering can with
a rose fitted to avoid disturbing seeds.
Covering the pot with clear plastic,
glass or cling film will keep the compost
moist until the seedlings come up.
Support: None needed

1.	
When the plants are around 10cm tall,
start to harvest.
2.	
Pick individual leaves, or cut them off,
leaving a short stump of plant to
grow again once or twice.

Protection:
Leaves may be nibbled by flea beetle
in hot weather. If this happens, cover
the next batch you sow with fleece or
a net curtain to keep the beetles at bay.
Feeding: None needed
