If you thought you would only find Samphire on the coast you are quite wrong. You can grow and have Samphire all year round if you would like. For best results grow undercover although it can be grown outside from May until October. Likes sandy soil. A wonderful addition to any seafood dish, fresh, vibrant, and crispy with a tang of the sea. Totally on trend with top chefs for fine dining and is delicious steamed or sauteed.

  • Sow under glass from March or direct outside from May to October. Undercover is best though
  • Surface sow onto moist, well drained seed compost and only barely cover
  • Optimum temperature: 25°C
  • Days to germination: 7-21 (can be erratic on timing)
  • Transplant to pots, containing free draining sandy soil, when seedlings reach 2-3cm and grow on
  • Height: 10cm
  • Spread: 10cm
  • Pots can be placed outside after all danger of frost has passed and the plants have been acclimatised correctly
  • Water with 5 teaspoons of unrefined sea salt to 5 litres of water Do not use table or Himalayan salt
  • In hot periods water daily to ensure the plants are always kept moist
  • Feed weekly with 15ml of Seaweed extract to your 5 litres of your salt water solution
  • Once plants are mature harvest every 7-10 days by snipping off 5-7cm from the tips to encourage fresh growth.
  • Repot into larger pots as necessary
  • Will happily overwinter in a cool greenhouse but will need fleecing/heating in particularly cold spells to ensure they are kept frost free
