Description

A beautiful edible salad leaf, at its best eaten small or even tiny, at the baby leaf stage.

To keep this perennial, cut right back and it will sprout again. Makes a beautiful winter pot topper with crimson tulips coming up through it in the spring. The two make for a dramatic and glamorous pair.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

It’s important to keep harvesting, cutting the plants right to the ground, to encourage young, fresh, tender and beautiful new leaves to form.
