How to sow
This salad leaf mix can be sown all year round indoors. Sow thinly 6mm (1/4in) deep in pots or trays of good quality seed compost on the windowsill. Sow monthly for a regular supply; harvest from 30 days in summer and up to 60 days during winter.
For outdoor crops, sow 3-4 seeds indoors in 5cm (2”) pots or used vending cups, or very thinly in a seed tray of good quality seed compost. Cover with 6mm (1/4”) of vermiculite or compost and keep at a minimum temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination which takes 4-7 days.
Alternatively, sow very thinly in a well- prepared seedbed 12mm (1/2”) deep in drills 23cm (9”) apart. Transplant seedlings after about 4 weeks from sowing, or when large enough to handle. Ideally plant in ‘square metre’ blocks allowing 25-36 plants per metre squared. Plant firmly and keep well watered for optimum results and to reduce bolting. Use fleece/environmesh to protect against caterpillar and aphid attack.
