Sow thinly in a finely raked, warm, moist soil, or in pots. Cover the seed lightly with compost and firm gently. Thin resulting seedlings to 3cm spacings and grow on keeping the soil moist. It should be possible to take the first 'clippings' with scissors around 21-28 days after sowing. Harvest the seedlings when around 3cm above the soil and allow young plants to produce new leaf growth. It should be possible to repeat this process 2-3 times, but we recommend a fortnightly sowing to ensure mini salad production throughout the summer. It is important to harvest young for baby leaves, alternatively space plants at 30cm intervals and grow on for stir-fry veg.
Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers, raised beds, windowsills.
