For salad leaves, sow seeds from March May outdoors. Sow seeds thinly 13mm deep in drills 30cm apart in soil that has been raked to a fine tilth. Thin plants to 7.5cm apart once big enough to handle. Thin once more allowing up to 25cm spacing for full size plants. Harvest young leaves as required, picking only a few from each plant.
