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. A doddle and delish!

    By Amanda Glanville 28-06-2011

    I have to say I was a bit iffy about this seed mix as there were several things in there I'd never heard of but what a find! Dead easy to grow, I'm now growing them for a second year in the veg patch and this time have taken your advice on sowing in succession to try and keep me going all summer. Just a handful really perks up a boring old lettuce from the supermarket reduced section so maybe you could market them as Recession Busting Seeds!
