PARSLEY

Petroselinum crispum (Mill.) Fuss. Umbelíferas

Sow from the end of winter to the end of summer. Can take 3 to 6 weeks to germinate. It can also be grown inside the house all throughout the year, provided it gets a lot of sunlight and an approximate temperature of 18ºC. Needs at least 2 hours of light a day, tolerating both shade and full sunlight. It really likes the heat, although it can adapt to wet climates and resists the cold well. Place in loose soil, better in humid and nitrogenous soils. Needs plenty of water, always keep the soil wet but without flooding it.

BASIL

Ocimum basilicum var. genevese L. Labiada

Se siembra a mediados de primavera, tardando en nacer unos 10/15 días. También se puede cultivar en el interior de casa durante todo el año, ofreciéndoles mucho sol y una temperatura aproximada de 18ºC. Necesita exposición directa al sol, pero a resguardo, tolerando algo de sombra. Al principio de su cultivo y hacia finales de verano debemos aplicarle algo de compost rico en nitrógeno. Regar de forma abundante, sustrato siempre húmedo pero sin encharcar.

CORIANDER

Coriandrum sativum L. Umbelíferas

This is a very difficult plant to grow at home. It is resistant to frost, but you must grow it in the ground. It needs a lot of light. Can also be grown inside the house all throughout the year, provided it gets a lot of sunlight and an approximate temperature of 18ºC. Very moderate watering needed, not resistant to flooding. Does not require specific nutrients. Place in loose soil. Use mature compost or humus, does not like fresh fertiliser. We recommend harvesting first thing in the morning on cloudy days.

CHERRY TOMATO

Solanum lycopersicum L. Solanáceas

Ideal for beginner vegetable growers as it is a very easy plant to look after. Choose a very sunny place, as its optimal temperature is 15-20ºC and it doesn’t tolerate frost. Begin by watering often and the first sprouts will appear after a week. Then, water only once or twice a week, as the excess humidity may give rise to fungus. After germination, transplant directly into the ground or into a 20-litre pot, adding natural fertiliser or compost for it to develop correctly.

ROSEMARY

Salvia rosmarinus L. Lamiáceas

An aromatic perennial shrub used as a condiment to meat and fish. Sow at the end of winter inside or in spring if outside. Germination is slow, so we advise that you keep the soil wet without flooding until the seedlings appear and place in a spot where the plant will get enough sunlight. Once germinated, water when the ground is dry, as the plant will not tolerate excess moisture. Once the plant reaches about 10 cm, transplant directly into the ground or to a pot, adding natural fertiliser or compost, and place in full sunlight. Harvest the young shoots twice a year.

STRAWBERRY

Fragaria vesca L. Rosáceas

Sow at the end of the summer or beginning of autumn, although it can also be done all throughout the year. Always keep the soil wet, and the sprouts will appear after one month. Transplant to a 30cm-diameter flowerpot stand when the plants reach 5-7 cm. Place in a spot where the plants will get 6-8 hours of direct sun to make sure they flower. This plant resists low temperatures very well. Avoid soaking and drying out the soil. Harvest from May onwards.

CUCUMBER

Cucumis sativus L. Curcubitáceas

Sow from April to June outside or from February onwards inside. Keep the soil wet without flooding until germination occurs. Place the young plants away from direct sunlight and transplant directly into the ground or a 20-litre pot. When they reach 15 cm, place in full sunlight, and avoid soaking or drying out the soil. It is a very expansive plant, so it would be a good idea to place it in a net or along a stake so that it grows upwards and takes up less space. We recommend harvesting the cucumbers young in order to enjoy all of their flavour.
