An exciting new rocket variety from British breeding, with a robust, upright habit which keeps the leaves off the ground.
The serrated leaves are broader than traditional rocket and they pack a mighty punch - possibly the hottest of all wild rocket varieties! Adds a great tangy, peppery flavour to salads, pasta or when used as a pizza topping.
Grow rocket 'wildfire' in containers, vegetable plots or on a windowsill indoors for crops all year round. Plants are slow to bolt.
Sowing months: March - September
Flowering months: May – August
Harvest month: May - October
Direct sow rocket seeds from April to September outdoors or October to March under glass, into well prepared, moist, well-drained soil in sun or semi shade. Sow seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (1/2") in drills 45cm (18") apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth.
When large enough to handle, thin rocket seedlings to 23cm (9") apart, or leave un-thinned and harvest as 'baby salad' leaves or as a 'cut and come again' crop. Sowings made in late summer will continue cropping into winter if protected by cloches, or if sown in frames, under glass, or in pots on the windowsill.
Position: sun or semi shade
Height: up to 15cm (5.9in)
