Hi, I've started to grow my own salad veggies a month ago, so I'm a beginner. One of the herbs I planted was salad rocket. I have struggled to find information about what time of the year you should plant it so I planted it a month ago, in October (spring in South Africa - lots of rain). I read that once it flowers, that's it, the plant will start tasting bitter and you'll need to buy more seedlings. My one month old rocket (one of 5) is already about 30cm tall and it's flowering! I would like to know if anyone has tips for growing rocket and to growing more seedlings yourself instead of having to buy it every time. Many thanks, Luiza
Did you know cilantro (Coriandrum sativum) is grown from coriander seed?
It's the perfect time to make a lovely herbal bouquet.
