Sow thinly, 0.5-1cm (¼- ½in) deep in rows 15cm (6in) apart. Thin to 15cm (6in) apart, when the seedlings are large enough to handle, use the thinnings in a salad. Keep the soil moist. Plants need some shade in hot weather to prevent the leaves from becoming tough. Do not overwater as this dilutes the taste of the harvest.
