Greens - Mesclun Mix - Mixed Species
Hardy Annual Salad mix contains arugula, mizuna, red kale, and tat soy. Mix with gourmet salad blend for a delicious salad.
Soil & Water: Greens like full sun except in hot summer climates where they prefer some shade, especially in the afternoon. Add plenty of compost to the soil to encourage rapid growth. Water evenly and moderately to prevent bitterness.
Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 4 weeks before transplanting outside, or sow seed directly as soon as the soil is workable. Make successive plantings every 10-14 days for a continuous harvest. In mild climates, greens can be sown from spring through fall.
Harvesting & Storage: Begin harvesting individual leaves after the center rosette has begun to develop. You can begin harvesting at 6" by picking outside leaves. Greens are slow to bolt and are winter hardy. Store the unwashed leaves wrapped in a damp paper towel in a perforated plastic bag in the refrigerator.
