What to do next: Prick out seedlings individually to 7cm (3") pots, once large enough to handle. Grow on in cooler conditions , then gradually harden off plants in a cold frame before planting out after risk of frost has passed.

Direct sown seedlings can be thinned to 15-30cm (6-12in) apart and harvested as required.
Handy Tip: Should be added to cooked dishes only minutes before use to retain the strength of flavour.
