Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant into the final position in late summer/early autumn space plants out to evenly between each other. Plant firmly and keep moist until established and protect from pigeons!
Care Tips Cut young leaves from the crown of the plant once they reach about 10-15cm long. Cut the whole crown out at once and leave to grow on and you'll get a secondary crop of tender, broccoli-like shoots just beneath the cut. Remove yellowing leaves, mulch thickly and keep weed-free. This is a very disease-resistant plant, it grows well in a container pot and tolerates poor soil.
Storing Store in the fridge for up to 10 days, or in the freezer for 6 months.
Harvesting September - March
Cooking Notes The leaves can be shallow or deep fried, also steamed or in a winter salsa verde.
