Salad Mix 'Tuscan Mix' - 12 plants per
12 plants per strip
Salad leaf collection 'Tuscan Mix' brings together classic Italian salads combining different colours, textures, leaf-shapes and flavours to create delicious and interesting salads over a long period. This mixture will include some, or all, of the following: Chicory Italico Rosso, Rocket, Lettuce Lolla Rossa and Catalogna Cerbiata and Kale Nero de Toscana. Treat as 'cut and come again' using full-size leaves for a stronger, more peppery flavour, baby leaves for a milder flavour. Pick frequently to maintain a supply of fresh leaves over many weeks.
Plant 15-20cm apart for full size leaves, 3-5cm apart for baby leaves, in well-drained, humus-rich soil, in sun or light shade. Protect from slugs. Water well in dry weather. Always water in the morning up to midday. Watering late in the day increases the risk of rotting.
Plant outdoors from March to September and harvest from May to November.
