Very easy to grow
Regularly sow seed 0.5cm deep in pots or rows. Thin or transplant seedlings to 15-30cm apart.
Water in dry weather to prevent tough and bitter leaves. Protect from slugs.
Pick individual leaves from ‘loose-leaf’ varieties as needed. Cut ‘hearting’ varieties when central leaves are fairly firm.
