    Corn Salad (Autumn)

    £4.99
    (10 Plants)

    This tasty salad leaf is perfect for growing in pots
    You can get a great crop of winter salad leaves from these. Our top tip is to buy 2 sets and plant them really close together, then harvest every other plant and leave the remainder as cut & come again. A brilliant space saver and tasty too.

    Number of plants: 10

    Variety: Verte De Cambrai (organic*)

    In the kitchen: A delicious addition to winter salads

    Delivery Info: Available to order now for delivery in September and October. Please see FAQs for up-to-date delivery info.

    Planting/Growing Advice: Plant in September and October in raised beds, traditional veg patches or in pots and planters. They will grow quite quickly while the weather is relatively warm in autumn, and then will slow down in the colder months. They are frost tolerant and can be grown outside, but will grow faster in a greenhouse/polytunnel or under horticultural fleece/cloche.

    When to harvest: You can start picking the outer leaves a month or so after planting. Leave a few baby leaves in the centre of the plant when harvesting and it will keep producing leaves for several months.
