Herb Seeds - Mint

This herb is the ideal accompaniment to roast lamb, and is great with boiled new potatoes and peas. Mint has a piquant aroma and as such is disliked by much of the insect world, making it a good companion plant.

This means that there is advantage to planting mint close to cabbages as it will repel the Cabbage White Butterfly. Sow these seeds from late winter to early summer in Seed Compost, but do not cover the seed with compost.

Make sure that the compost is moist but not wet and seal in a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 7-16 days at 21-24C. Transplant when large enough to handle into 8cm pots. Later plant out 30cm apart into ordinary soil in part shade.

    Sowing months: Feb-Apr
    Position: Full sun
    Height: 45cm
    Spread: 30cm

    Sow basil seed from February to June, or sow throughout the year for indoor cultivation out of season.

Place in a propagator at a temperature of 15-25C or seal the container inside a polythene bag until after germination, which takes 14-21 days. Keep the compost slightly dry at all times, watering very lightly as seedlings emerge. When they are large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm pots and grow basil plants on in cooler conditions.

    When all risk of frost has passed, harden basil plants off before planting out in a sheltered sunny position in well drained, fertile sandy soil; or potting into patio containers, window boxes, or windowsill pots indoors. Water moderately taking care to avoid splashing the leaves. Harvest basil leaves regularly when required to promote fresh new growth and pinch out any flowers that appear to prolong the harvest period. Culinary note: Basil can be dried or frozen for using later on, or added to oils and vinegars for extra flavour.

    Taste of Italy Seeds - Endive Mixed

    Endive Indivia Mixed contains a mixture of different tastes, colours and leaf shapes, from light to dark green outer leaves and white to gold centres, plus deep green salad endive with upright irregular shaped leaves. Ideal for summer and autumn cultivation. Endive Indivia Mixed contains Endive Romanesca da Taglio, Fijne Krul Geel (Sempre Bianca), Pancalieri a Costa Bianca, Riccia a Cuore d'Oro.

    Sowing months: Mar-Aug
    Position: Full sun

    Soil must be well prepared in a sunny, open site. Sow seeds into peat pots/modules from March to July and transplanted when plants are 10-15cm tall, at 30cm square spacing. Alternatively seeds can be sown directly into very finely prepared soil, in rows about 13mm deep allowing 30cm between rows. Cover the seeds lightly with soil. Thin to 30cm apart in the row. Can also be sown more thickly as 'salad leaves' from March to August. Water after sowing directly or transplanting and keep plants moist at all times.

    Harvesting of mature hearts can commence after about 80 days from sowing. To reduce the bitter flavour the plants should be blanched in succession. Once blanched the hearts will deteriorate in quality, so blanching should be carried out to fit in with harvesting requirements. Blanching is achieved by tying up the lower leaves to cover the plants or by placing a 25cm size pot over the plants and blocking the drainage hole to exclude light.

    Herb Seeds - Rocket

    This very useful salad plant is popular with todays chefs, and is widely used raw in salads or cooked lightly when it makes a delicious spinach substitute.

    Pick the young leaves as required over the whole row rather than just one or two plants as this would weaken them. As the flower buds appear pinch them out to prolong cropping.
