8. Mesclun

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Plants With A Purpose -

If you can’t be both­ered grow­ing in­di­vid­ual va­ri­eties, you can mix your favourite seed, or buy a com­mer­cial mesclun mix. I do both, us­ing mesclun as my stan­dard bulk greens and add other va­ri­eties for dif­fer­ent flavour and colour ef­fects.

VA­RI­ETIES TO TRY

I use Kings Seeds’ Orig­i­nal Mesclun mix which con­tains en­dive, corn salad, rocket, chicory, let­tuces, spinach, pak choi, beets and mus­tard, then spice it up by adding Mus­tard Streaks, Radish Rambo and Mizuna Red Coral for ex­tra colour.
