An annual that likes a sunny yet moist position, generally planting in spring and autumn are ideal.

They require frequent watering (shallow rooted) and good mulching. Likes loamy, well-drained soil. Can harvest young leaves after 30 days. Companion plant with beans, beetroot, cabbage, carrots, cucumber, marjoram, peas and strawberries.
