Get seeds of Rocket Athena. Athena's masses of succulent, serrated leaves pack a peppery punch and with a controlled growth rate it's unlikely bolt to seed.

Ready to harvest in the space of just one month or so rocket Athena supplies you with an on-going crop of leaves from as early as May to the end of September. This means you need not pick up expensive polythene bags of rocket from the supermarket; great news for making savings and cutting down on plastic use.

How to sow

Sow indoors in March and April 1cm (1/2in) deep in clean trays or individual pots filled with moist, firm compost. Place somewhere that reaches 10°C (50°F) until transplanting. Keep soil moist at all time.

Alternatively sow outdoors from May to September 1cm (1/2in) deep on a moist seed bed on a prepared part of your vegetable plot or in a raised planter like a VegTrug. Thin out 10cm (4in) apart.

We recommend that you sow the seeds of rocket Athena little and often so you can ascertain a constant supply of edible leave throughout the spring and summer. Sow a new row every two weeks, thinning out to give them space to develop.

Rocket Athena makes a great catch-crop while you’re waiting for other long-term crops to develop. While you are waiting to harvest your onions in summer or summer cabbage, you can take advantage of this faster-growing salad crop.

Please note - These seeds should ideally be sown this season. All our packets have ‘Sow by Date’ guidance on them, this is the date the seeds should be sown in order to achieve the highest rate of germination. You will still see the same high-quality plants if sowing in seasons after the ‘Sow by Date’ but may see a reduction in germination rate
