Packs a flavoursome punch!

These leaves have a fab flavour, giving a mustardy punch to salads and other dishes. You can start harvesting as soon as the leaves reach 5-10cm and if you keep picking off the leaves it will keep producing more for you to enjoy right through the autumn and winter months.

Number of plants: 10

Variety: Frills (organic*)

Can be grown in: Raised beds or pots. Find out more about growing these in our growing guide below.

In the kitchen: The texture is crunchy yet tender with a robust mustard flavour and mild sweet and spicy pepper-like finish. The young leaves are mild and best used raw in a salad, but more mature leaves stand up well to a light sauté or braise.

Delivery: These plug plants can be delivered between late August and mid-late October. Available to pre-order now. These plants will arrive bare-rooted with an approximate height of 10-15cm.

Ready to harvest: October to April

*Transplants suitable for organic growing.

The right site

They need plenty of sunshine and moisture-retentive soil.

Can be grown in....

Raised beds or pots – they are pretty easy growing!

How far apart?

As a general rule, give them about 15cm space. As always, you should check the instructions on each variety when you receive your baby plants to make sure you give them enough space.

Looking after your plants....

Lettuces and leaves are really very low-maintenance, so you can’t go too wrong.

Weeding

Keep the weeds down to give them the best chance

Storage Tips

We really recommend picking what you need, when you need it. But they will keep in the fridge for a coupleof days.

Ways to cook

It’s not all about salads, although freshly cut lettuce from the garden is one of the best things about summer salads! You can try making summer soups with wilted lettuce, pea and mint. And a lot of leaves are great in stir fries.
