Outdoors: sow thinly, March-May, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Thin seedlings to 30cm (1') apart. Water well until plants are established. Keep moist and weed free. If desired, plants can be kept smaller by pinching back regularly. Harvest: June-October. Pick leaves and stems as required. Harvest ripe seeds once they have turned brown.
The foliage is delicious added to salads. Seeds can be used in pickles and sauces. Stems can be cooked or eaten raw, like celery.
