Description

I am a reincarnated rabbit, and love eating a salad at least once a day even through winter and spring. It gives me huge pleasure, picking it, dressing it, and then crunching and munching away. This is the ultimate mix of hardy winter salad leaves, here growing in the greenhouse at Perch Hill but also fine under a cloche in the garden if we hit a very cold snap.

This collection contains 5 seedlings each of:
  • Spinach 'Rubino' F1
  • Mustard 'Red Giant'
  • Mizuna
  • Komatsuna
  • Mustard 'Red Frills'
  • Mizuna 'Red Knight' F1
  • Rocket (Salad)
  • Mustard 'Wasabi'
  • Winter Purslane (Miner's Lettuce)

Care Tips

Thin or space plants 10-15cm for cut-and-come-again, 20cm if you want large leaves. Keep moist. It may get infested with flea beetle, April-August leaving lots of tiny holes all over the leaves. Protect with a physical barrier
