How to Grow

Mesclun mixes are sun-loving cool weather crops that grow best in organic, well drained soil. Sow as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring, then every two weeks thereafter to ensure a continuous supply. Sow about 3 mm (1/8″) deep in rows 45 cm (18″) apart. An even supply of moisture during the entire growth period is imperative for success. Harvest by either pulling the entire plant or by cutting leaves from the main stem at least 2.5 cm (1″) above the base – this will allow the plants to sprout new leaves. Once plants start to bolt (they start to produce a rapidly growing flower stems), leaves become bitter.
