They grow really quickly, with sweet and tender leaves ready for harvesting just 6 weeks after sowing. And you can pick individual leaves as you need them, leaving the rest of the plant to continue to grow.

Perfect for a sunny or lightly shaded position in the vegie patch or in pots. So add a gourmet splash to your salads and grow a delicious combo of baby lettuce. It’s time to sow some now!

Growing tips:

Disease Control:
Cool season vegies can be prone to diseases like downy mildew. Downy mildew is a fungal disease that is favoured by cool weather and starts as angular shaped yellow patches on the top of the leaves, often corresponding with furry or downy growth on the undersides.

It can rapidly spread to cover entire leaves. Downy mildew infections can result in death of leaves and lead to very poor plant health.
Yates® Liquid Copper is a broad spectrum fungicide that will control many common diseases of vegies.

It’s a very handy product to have on hand for winter as it will control:

Spray regularly as per the label directions to help keep vegies protected from disease.
