What's so special about our Asian Salad Mix?

Growing this loose leaf lettuce mix is easy: You prick 9 holes in a square patch, toss in some seeds, and that's it. 

Watch out for snails and caterpillars in summer: they love the young plants. 

Sowing and growing

Once the seedlings come up, they’ll grow fast. You can already harvest after about 4 weeks. Give your plants plenty of water: in warm, dry weather they’ll start to flower quickly. 

The young leaves are tastiest, so don’t let your plants grow too big. But if you want to experiment, at the end of the season you can let some of the Asian Salad Mix varieties grow. A few of them can get really big will be able to handle the cold. These ones are great for stir-fries. 

Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are in the Planty Gardening app.  

How do you use it?

Toss young leaves together in a salad or add them to a cheese sandwich. They've got a nice spicy taste.

Cut or pick the leaves close to the ground. As long as you leave the center of the plants, leaves will grow back.

Don't let the plants get too big: the young leaves are tastiest. If you do let a few grow, the larger leaves are also delicious in stir-fries.
