What to do on arrival

On arrival open the packages immediately. You may notice a little compost spillage due to movement in the post, and occasionally an odd yellow leaf may appear and fall off due to the plants being in a box for a short period, but this is nothing to worry about. If there is any significant damage please contact us immediately. Stand the plants upright and give a little water as required. After a couple of hours the plants will have recovered from the journey and will be ok to plant as directed below.

Soil Preparation

Always prepare your soil well prior to planting by adding a general fertiliser and rake well into the soil. If growing in containers, plant into a good quality potting compost and feed throughout the growing season to keep plants healthy and producing a tasty crop over a longer period.

Harvest Period

All the year round.

Planting Distance

20cm (8") between plants in rows spaced 35-45cm (15-18") apart.

Growing Instructions

Plugs are best planted as a cluster of smaller seedlings. Plant into well prepared soil in a sunny position and water well. As small plants grow gradually thin to the strongest seedling using the thinnings as baby salad leaves. Once plants are established pull rather than cut leaves as required leaving main plant to continue to develop and be harvested over a long cropping period.
