Salad Leaves - Beet Bulls Blood
Although primarily grown as an ornamental plant for its dark red leaves, it is now mildly used in baby leaf salads. It provides almost crimson colour leaves with a sweet taste to add to any salad.
Sow outdoors from April to October in shallow drills in a sunny position. Cover lightly with soil and keep well-watered in dry weather. Sow throughout the season for a regular crop. This is a cut-and-come-again crop. Start cutting when the plants are 2-10cm tall and you will harvest up to 5 cuts.
