Very easy to grow
Sow seed 0.5cm deep in rows 20-30cm apart. Thin seedlings to 10cm apart. Can be sown in pots and transplanted.
Water carefully - too much promotes excess foliage, too little produces woody roots and a poor yield.
Start lifting some roots when still quite small and leave other plants to grow on. Twist off leaves rather than cutting.
