Sowing & harvest regimes For baby leaf production
Sow thickly at 5-10cm apart. Leaves can be harvested from 8cm high (20-35 days depending on the season) – leave about 2cm above ground so leaves re-sprout. At least two crops should be possible before resowing. Space plants about 15-30cm apart. Plants can be harvested whole or individual leaves taken as required and used rather like cabbage. Spring sown crops need to be harvested before bolting.
