A blend of specialty salad greens, not just different lettuce’s. Wonderfully appealing for their colourful display and harmony of tastes from sweet and crunchy to tangy and spicy. Can be grown in the garden or in containers for several harvests from one sowing.
How to Grow: Mesclun mixes are sun-loving, cool weather crops that grow best in organic, well drained soil. Sow as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring, then every two weeks thereafter to ensure a continuous supply. Sow about 3 mm (1/8”) deep in rows 45 cm (18”) apart. An even supply of moisture during the entire growth period is imperative for success. Harvest by either pulling the entire plant or by cutting leaves from the main stem at least 2.5 cm (1”) above the base as this will allow the plants to sprout new leaves. Once plants start to bolt the leaves become bitter.
