Growing Calendar for Salad Mix Seeds - Bright & Spicy

Enjoy this well-balanced mix of salad leaves and greens with similar growth but contrasting flavours that harmonise with each other perfectly.
Yes- you can buy bags of salad leaves from the supermarket but growing your own means you have bags and bags worth – working out at a fraction of the cost.
Ideal for garnishes when you’re cooking for friends or as tasty sandwich fillers to accompany egg, fish, meats or cheese. Your excellent value mix of 500 seeds for a potential 500 plants contains:
We recommend you cut and come again with this mix. Cut leaves to just over soil level for harvesting and your leaves will regrow weeks later for a subsequent cut or two. Keep salad leaves well-watered.
Try succession sowing which means you sow little and often for supplies throughout the summer and right up to November.
A quick growing ''cut and come again'' mix of spicy mustards, pak choi, tatsoi and greek cress
Height: Use as ''Baby Leaf'' when individual leaves are large enough to cut.
Sow Indoors: October - March
Sow Outdoors: April-September thinly in rows, direct in harvest position ½in (1cm) deep, with 6in (15cm) between rows. Keep soil moist at all times.
Grow On: Thin out plants 1-2 in (2-5cm) if required.
Harvest: May-November as soon leaves are big enough to cut.
Use thinnings as baby leaf. Use fleece to protect crop from frost or cold wind.
