Sowing, Seeds, Planting Direct sow in small batches every 4-6 weeks, March-August. The plants will be happiest in a cool northern bed, kept moist. Hot weather inhibits germination and increases the likelihood of bolting. Water the drill before sowing to decrease temperatures and sow in the evening. Can also sow in modules under cover February-September. You can speed the germination process up by sowing into a length of guttering under cover and transplanting outside.
Care Tips The plants need plenty of water, but not too much sun. Hot weather inhibits germination.
Storing This keeps well in the fridge.
Harvesting May-October, 6 weeks from sowing for salad leaves, 10 weeks to hearting. The leaves will produce for 2-3 months.
Cooking Notes This can be cooked, stuffed or eaten raw.
