Outdoors: sow thinly, March-August, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into prepared, fertile soil, which has been watered. For cut and come again baby leaves, allow 15cm (6") between rows, or sow thinly, directly into 25cm (10") pots (with drainage holes). Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 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: April-October for baby leaves; whole plants from May.
Little space - no problem: Specially selected to grow in containers or small garden spaces, so good crops of tasty, nutritious vegetables can be harvested from your patio, balcony or courtyard.
