Description

Chinese Leaves are quick maturing and form a cos lettuce type heart in under 9 weeks. Plants are very slow to bolt, so stand well over a long season. Use as salad leaves as you would a Romaine lettuce or as a full heart for salads, stir fries and as a cooked vegetable. Superb quality and garden performance without bolting. Mature heads can be cut and stored in a frost free shed.


Companion planting: Try growing cabbages with Nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.

Sowing
Sow April to July, every 4 weeks. Sow thinly in well prepared soil, 13mm (1/2") deep in rows 38cm (15in) apart. Keep soil constantly moist to prevent seedlings bolting and to deter flea beetle which can pepper holes in the leaves.

Thin seedlings to 30cm (12in) apart for full hearted plants or to 15cm (6in) apart for 'Cut and Come Again' salad leaves. Water well during dry periods.
