An ideal vegetable for winter greens. Extremely hardy plants producing tasty leaves which should be picked when young and tender. As the plants are not transferred to their final site until July, they are perfect for using space previously containing early peas or potatoes. Sow the seeds thinly in a nursery bed 1cm deep in April or May and thin seedlings to 10cm apart. Transplant to final site in July planting 45cm apart. Water after planting and reguarly until established. First young leaves should be ready from late November.
