For indoor cultivation: Sow year-round on the surface of moist seed compost in trays or pots.  Cover lightly with compost, and keep at 10-20C. Germination takes 2-3 weeks.  Keep moist and give the plants good light.   For outdoor cultivation: Sow in succession from March to September directly in the soil in rows, and thin to 10-20cm apart.  

Grow & Harvest Keep plants lightly moist and shaded in the hottest weather and this should maintain steady grow and prevent bolting.  Leaves are ready to eat within 25-30 days of sowing, when they are 5-10cm long.  Cut leaves regularly and remove flower-heads. Each plant provides leaves for 6-8 weeks.  Discard plants when the leaves become tough.
