Description

By growing chicory it is possible to harvest fresh vegetables and salad in the middle of winter! To achieve this feat, you'll have to dig up the roots in autumn and let them sprout indoors in winter. But also in summer, chicory provides your with a
constant supply of fresh lettuce leaves.

Sow from mid June to end of July directly outdoors. Only slightly sprinkle the seeds with soil and gently press them into the ground they need light to germinate. Prick out to maintain a distance of 30 x 30cm. Prefers good, loose garden soil in a sunny location and needs sufficient water. Ideally, the soil should be loosened profoundly before planting to promote beet growth.
