Direct sow salad leaves outdoors in summer or in an unheated greenhouse during the autumn and winter months. Grow salad leaves in well prepared, fertile, moist soil in sun or semi shade. Sow seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (½") in drills 38cm (15") apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 10cm (4") apart for baby leaves or to 30cm (12") for mature plants.
Water salad leaves regularly, and hoe between plants to prevent weeds from establishing. Dry weather may cause plants to bolt so watering is particularly critical during the 2 weeks before harvesting. A thick mulch applied around the plants will help to retain moisture in the soil. Harvest baby salad leaves when required by picking a few leaves from each plant. Mature plants can be harvested by pulling up the entire plant before trimming off the stem with a knife.

  1. Salad leaves

    By Paul Stevens 14-05-2011

    Absolutely wonderful product. I sowed the seed in a 12ins tub and its been enough for the 2 of us 0 we cut it and it comes again and again. I even sowed a second tub "just in case" but as yet we haven't needed it. It also saves valuable garden space as we can grow it on the patio instead of having a 6ft x 2ft piece of garden for the various typed of salad. Brilliant and well recommended
