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.
