They can be grown in open ground or under protection, direct sown into beds and  then harvested at 12-15cm tall in as little as 28 days from sowing at peak  season. Viridis Hortus Salad mixes can also be sown direct in to pots (use 1-3  litre pots) Just sow little and often to get continuity.

Each of the mixes can be grown all year round, for a continuous supply of tasty  and nutritious baby leaves. They can be grown in the home, on windowsills or  raised in pots in glasshouses or polytunnel's in cooler areas for winter early  spring crops.

Sowing:
In autumn and winter seed can be sown into pots or seed trays which can be grown  on the kitchen windowsill or in a heated conservatory/greenhouse.
Sow 20-30 seeds into a 10-12cm pot using a free draining compost and cover seed  lightly after sowing.
For spring and summer crops, sow direct into prepared seed beds in the kitchen  garden or greenhouse border, and this is the best growing technique for spring  and summer crops.

Sow outdoors sprinkle seeds 1/2 inch apart in a 2 to 4 inch wide row covering  lightly or broadcast sow.
Tip a small amount of seed into your hand, take a pinch and spread thinly along  the trench. Cover with soil, label and water.
If birds are a problem in your garden, spread netting to prevent them eating the  seed.
Sow every two weeks for a continual supply of tender young leaf.

Cultivation:
The best tasting leaves come from plants which are grown quickly; this means a  temperature of 15-19°C (60-70°F).
Under optimum growing conditions a crop of salad leaves can be ready for picking  3-4 weeks from sowing. Slower growing crops can become more fibrous and hotter  flavored.
Once cut the plants should have sufficient energy for re-growth to provide a  second or even third crop of leaves, giving a regular supply with "little and  often" sowings.
