Outdoor Sowing

Sow thinly, direct into 25cm pots for baby leaves, or in a prepared seed bed in rows 25cm apart. Cover with 0.5cm of fine soil and firm gently. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. For continuous crops, sow every 2-3 weeks.

Growing On

For baby leaf, no thinning is required. For mature plants, when large enough, thin to 10cm apart. Keep moist, and do not allow plants to dry out, this prevents them running to seed.

Harvesting

Pick individual leaves as required, taking a few leaaves from each plant. They will regrow for up to 3 or 4 cuts.
