Tip: If you sow in February, cover the square patch at night with our crop cover (the MM-Muts) or some plastic containers to make your plants grow faster. And don’t forget to keep the soil mix nice and moist. 

Harvest the plants 2 cm above the soil line. The plants will grow back! After about 3 weeks you can harvest again :-).
