    A quick growing aromatic annual that is widely used in Middle Eastern Mediterranean or Indian cooking. All parts of the plant are edible but it is primarily grown for the freshleaves and dried seeds.

  • Growing Instructions:

    Sow in March to August outdoors directly into a well prepared soil in full sun. Sow thinly 13mm deep in rows 30cm apart and thin the seedlings to 23cm apart when large enough to handle and you will be able to start cropping from May. Alternatively you can sow them indoors in pots on a sunny windowsill for fresh leaves virtually all year round. The plants can quickly run to flower if they are not kept watered and regular sowings are required for a constant supply.
