Key facts about Simply Salad Global Gourmet Mix
- (lettuce, brassicas and Asian herbs)
- Harvest when 6 in (15 cm) tall
- Part to full sun
Each multi-seed pellet contains five to seven seeds of different salad greens. Harvest when leaves are six inches tall, cutting back to one inch above soil level. The plants will put on new growth and can be harvested again in a few weeks. —Rodger Tschanz, University of Guelph
These greens would be equally good in a light stir-fry, too. The seeds in each pellet germinate about the same time, meaning plants reach maturity together. Cool weather is best; on hot, sunny days, provide some shade. You can expect two or three harvests from this cut-and-come-again collection. Pretty enough to be grown on their own in a container.
