- Highly nutritious & flavourful.
- Ever popular, strong flavour and crisp texture. Easy to grow, even in containers without running water. A good source of vitamin A, vitamin C and folate.
- A Best Buy variety as recommended by the Gardening Press and Consumer Groups.
- Recommended by Sue Fisher in BBC Gardeners World Magazine (January 2015 edition): “Perennial, easy in a pot and, when grown under cover, can be harvested through most of the year.” Also recommended by Alys Fowler.
Sow & Grow: Outdoors: sow thinly March-August, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into prepared, fertile soil (with some shade), which has been watered. For cut and come again baby leaves, allow 15cm (6") between rows, or sow thinly, directly into 25cm (10") pots. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. No further thinning should be necessary. Keep moist. Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply of leaves. Pick a few from each plant when approx. 10cm (4") high. They will regrow for up to 4 'cuts.' For mature leaves, allow 25cm (10") between rows and thin to 20cm (8") apart. Harvest whole plants from May. Generally, the larger the leaf, the hotter it will become.
