Salad Leaves - Polycress
This is a welcome addition for your salad leaves. Best grown outdoors, Polycress is quick maturing with an upright habit making large, dissected, slightly pungent leaves about 25 days from sowing. Sow seeds in succession for a complete season of 'baby salad leaves'. Polycress is slow to bolt if kept well-watered.
Sow seeds March to September at 3 week intervals. Sow seeds thinly, 1cm deep in drills, 30cm apart. Best suited to outdoor growing in moist, well-drained soil. Thin seedlings to 5cm apart when large enough to handle. Harvest leaves as required, picking only a few from each plant. Can also be grown in punnets or trays indoors as 'seedling cress'.
