Useful Information: Easy to grow variety; Suitable for contained gardens; Salad bar; Oriental vegetables
Sow and grow: Outdoors: sow thinly, March-August where they are to crop, 1.5 cm (1/2-inch) deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, moisture-retentive soil, which has already been watered. Allow 25 cm (10-inch) between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Thin out to 20 cm (8-inch) apart. No thinning is necessary if only baby leaves are required. Water well until plants are established. Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply. Harvest: April-October.
Hints and tips: Cut a few leaves from each plant, perfect for baby leaf type salads. They will grow back for up to four cuts. Cut the whole heads of mature plants.
